The 357 magnum revolver EMF Great Western II is made by Pietta’s Italian craftsmen in Brescia, a region famous for making guns since before the Revolutionary War.
Alessandro Pietta, SASS Life #41531 took a page out of history books and reintroduced 1873, paired with the 1860 Army grip frame. He added a competition trigger that is wider and set back, allowing for a larger finger in the trigger guard.
When you first pick up the “Alchimista”, your initial reaction is, “WOW! What a nice feeling!” The 1860 grip is longer and slimmer than the traditional 1873 Single Action Army grip. While not quite the 90-degree angle of the Bisley model Colts, it points better and more naturally than the revolvers with the standard 1873 grip.
