NRA Museum keeps collection of fake guns to keep them off the open market
The fakes of February
Fairfax, Virginia -
To most casual viewers, the above pistol appears to be a Texas Belt Model Colt Patterson. There's the telltale long tailed barrel, the distinctive shape and an aging that suggest we're talking about a 170 year old gun here.
Now Paterson is the first firearm that Colt ever made. A very rare find on the open market. And the Texas Belt Model, given the history of the great state and the famed Texas Rangers, is even more rare. That makes this a very valuable gun — if it was real.
