Some of these guns have been used on the History channels "Wild West Tech" TV series, and the Discovery channel. One piece in particular was used at the recent 125th anniversary of the shootout at the OK Corral in Tombstone Arizona in October of 2006. There was an estimated crowd of between 8 to 10 thousand people in attendance. There was a special performance and reinactment of the notorious gun battle on location at the OK Corral itself. It was performed on the exact day of the 125th anniversary. Miguel Corona, was one of the hand picked actors to be involved in this Historic reinactment of the famous shootout. It was a true honer for a chosen few. Miguel brought out of retirement his pride and joy. His authentic first generation Model 1873 45 caliber 51/2 inch barrel, single action, nickle plated revolver. It was purchased 5 years ago in a flea market. I don't think the owner knew what he had. It is an original piece well over 100 years old. It was appropriately brought out for this famous reinactment played to a completely packed arena at the actual OK Corral. At the bottom of this page you can see a photo of Miguel on hallowed ground with the Colt 45 in his hand. The History channel was there and filmed the gunfight and released a DVD to the general public which promptly sold out.
