To some, Billy the Kid is a notorious outlaw, and to others, he is viewed as a sort of western folk hero. Whichever way you view him, you can rest assured that this Billy the Kid Pistol Boxed Set is a great collectible that remembers this gunslinger. Billy the Kid was born William Henry McCarty in 1859, and later assumed the name William H. Bonney, as well as the alias Billy the Kid. His exploits were published in both the Las Vegas Gazette and the New York Sun, which only contributed to his fame and status as a folk hero. He was killed in 1881 by Pat Garrett, who is rumored to have shot him in cold blood. Included in this set is a replica revolver, patterned after an 1873 Single Action Army revolver. This quick-draw model has a rich wood grip, as well as simulated gold engravings along the frame and cylinder. Also included in the set is an engraved brass marshal badge, as well as a reproduction wanted poster that sets the Kids bounty at 500 dollars, dead or alive. Consider this a kit for the lawman seeking to relive the hunt for Billy the Kid, or a sort of remembrance to both his life and his death. The pistol, badge, and wanted poster are included in a handsome hardwood box that features a walnut finish and hidden hinges. Hero or villain, outlaw or folk hero – you can see this gunslinger however you wish, especially when you are looking at this Billy the Kid Pistol Boxed Set, which is a great way to start your own collection or a perfect addition to a collection of true Wild West pieces.
