Spook's gun

Postby ac427cpe on Tue Sep 08, 2009 2:18 am

Just wondering what the inspiration was for it. Seems to be a pretty standard shaped wheelgun with a few fancy looking bits... any more drawings you'd be willing to share with us? possible detail? And I've gotta ask... why 44mag, isn't the gun supposed to be over 100 years old?

It's based very (very) loosely off a Colt Dragoon, but is meant to be a one-of-a-kind pistol, so it doesn't really look much like the old Dragoon anymore. It's much larger, for instance, because it was built with Spook in mind, and he's 6'9" with a hand large enough to palm the steering wheel of the Barracuda.

As for the caliber, I stuck with the .44 that the Dragoon originally used, but figured the Watchmaker was forward-thinking enough to know that cartridges would be the way of the future.

There's a story I'm writing the script for now that tells how this pistol got made, but it's been slow going. I keep getting stuck on one point in the story. :-|
