Pyramyd Air is proud to announce the latest Umarex Colt Limited Edition, hand engraved Peacemaker by Adams & Adams of Vershire, Vermont, one of America's top firearms engravers for over 50 years.
The designs on this gun are copied from an original L. D. Nimschke Colt Peacemaker done for New York City retailer Schuyler, Hartley & Graham in the 1870s. It is reproduced here by John J. Adams, Jr. for the new 4.5mm nickel plated 7-1/2 inch Peacemaker pellet model. The revolver comes with white (faux ivory) Micarta grips and has the same L.D. Nimschke engraving patterns as the 5-1/2 inch model, only in an all-nickel finish, with the hand engraving inked in by hand for added detail.
Louis Daniel Nimschke's style, and that of the Nimschke Shop in New York City, was unique in the combination of engraving elements, and extensive use of punch dot backgrounds to add greater depth to the engraving. Patterns were usually a combination of vine scrolls, sunbursts, crosshatch panels (usually on the side of the frame where it meets the barrel), and use of borders or waves and dots to accent ejector housings and frames. This is the style used by Adams & Adams for the Umarex Colt Nimschke Peacemaker. This is the second Umarex Colt model to be engraved by Adams & Adams exclusively for Pyramyd Air. Like the 5-1/2 inch model, this gun will also be limited to just 100 examples, each individually numbered and signed by Adams & Adams.

Things I liked: Everything, almost! I purchased one pellet and two of the bbs', and all three are very, very nice. All three came exactly as described, short on nothing. The engraving is deep and beautiful and covers much of the two bbs' but not quite as much on the pellet due to the longer barrel. I am very happy with them. These however, I haven't shot and don't plan to, so I don't know about the accuracy but I would guess it's as good as the standard models. One more thing, even though I ordered the two bb versions on different dates PA, was able to send them with consecutive numbers, and you can't beat that!
Things I would have changed: This is why I wrote almost above. A nicer box or certificate of authenticity would have been nice to display with these Colt SAA's but for the price I paid and for all the Adams and Adams engraving that these have on them it was a Great deal.
What others should know: If you look around you can buy some nice display cases at most gun shows and at very good prices. Buy yourself one of these and then look around for a copy of "Guns of the Old West" magazine, they had a great story about these special editions pistols and Adams & Adams, together you have the 'things I would have changed' covered.
Things I liked: A really nice revolver, that is a work of art. Waited a few months but worth it.
Things I would have changed: Mine arrived in the standard box sporting the standard wood grips. Pyramid is sending the white grips , but I doubt they will have the nickel screws. The revolver should be in a special edition box, and it should be checked before being shipped , which clearly mine was not. It put its' first shot dead on in the center of the bull, so it shoots as good as it looks. I would have added more engraving on the back strap, and a ring around the end of the barrel more like the original engraved Colts
What others should know: The description states ink filled engraving , but it is not. Still and impressive looking revolver

I totally agree with Tony in that I would LOVE to buy a quality nickel plated lever action rifle with the same hand tooling you have on these pistols, to add to the collection. I noticed you can get this in bb or pellet. So are there going to be 100 of each or 50 of each? And do you have any nice wooden boxes that say COLT instead of John Wayne? Is one of these choices in a 5.5" or are they both 7.5"? The ads are a bit confusing.
I'm considering ordering this gorgeous revolver. It's good to see you do limited editions. Now would you PLEASE consider offering a quality nickel plated, wood stocked, CO2 Lever Action rifle or carbine? PLEASE?!! I would be the first to order and I believe it would sell if it is a quality piece. Thanks.
Does this $549.00 air pistol come with a nice wooden presentation case or a plain cardboard box like the $119.00 version?
You will get a absolutely beautiful engraved Colt air pistol, unfortunately shipped in the standard printed box like the $119.00 standard version
