    David Mamet's Notes: I bought this gun from a firearms auction a long time ago. It is stamped from the WESTERN COSTUME COMPANY; that is, it was a prop used in very many cowboy movies. So I removed the mainspring (which is also included, but not at this writing installed) and used the revolver as a paperweight. I showed it to R.L. Wilson and remarked about it as a movie gun. He checked it out and said that that was swell.
