Deadwood Special "Ulysses" Revolver
Who says art can't kill?
Each of these revolvers has been lovingly hand-crafted in the smaller factories and gun-foundries of Deadwood, following the now-standardized pattern of the “Ulysses” patent. They are plated in fine silver and each bears the mark of its personal gunsmith.
