Re: batt .44
Do you mean the BAT Masterson pistol ?
i forget who made it, but remember they where trying to get sales by using the influence of a few well known crime fighters of the wild west period there was a Wyatt Earp version by the same maker
the Masterson version was a standard pistol but with a slightly shorter barrel from memory, supposedly Marshal Masterson stated the shorter barrel gave him a edge in a draw, so the gun maker made some with a shorter barrel
its referenced in "Gun's that won the west" a book detailing the history of firearms of the time
i loaned someone my copy and aint seen it since ...
it had a ad for one while the Marshall was still alive , he made a joke in public about it and was quoted
just found this online
i think mtnboomer is spot on
