The body is nickel plated and extensively engraved with gold plating, and bears the same serial number of the real revolver, 151284. John Wayne's signature is engraved on the grip strap. It is not designed to load bullets or fire them (however we have made dummy shells that fit in to give the cylinder a loaded look!) but the hammer, trigger and chamber all work. The chamber can be removed as well.
