Revolver Colt Peacemaker

Functional miniature model

 

"Abe Lincoln may have freed all men, but Sam Colt made them equal."

American proverb

 

Revolver “Colt Peacemaker” is a reduced 1:2 copy of the famous peacemaker revolver, which belonged to Leonid Brezhnev, the leader of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

Generally, Colt Peacemaker has not changed in outward appearance since 1873. The company Colt tried to stop the production of the legendary revolver of the "Wild West" twice and each time they started making it again under pressure from an angry public.

In 1974, during the visit of Gerald Ford, the President of the United States, in Vladivostok, two colts named "LIB-1" and "LIB-2" were presented to Leonid Ilyich. The titles' meaning is simple. It is the initials of the Head of the Soviet country.

Artisans of the Lobortas Classic Jewelry House repeated appearance of the LIB's with the masterful precision. Like in the original revolver, the grips were made of ivory. Gold decorated them – the portrait of Leonid Brezhnev, recognizable outline of the Kremlin, the Soviet symbols and all the details of the original were reproduced in gold.

The only difference is that a miniature copy shoots Flobert type .22 BB Cap ammunition only. This is a universal ammo for all mini firearms.

On the hilt of the miniature copy, there is an inscription: "The Colt armory company to General Secretary L.I. Brezhnev".

Classic Jewelry House "Lobortas" – armaments second to none.
