    The website looks old and out of date

    Yep. When Bronson received the pistol in the mail, he introduced it as Mr. Wildey. And he did some pretty hellatious shooting with it.:)

    It's falling apart - busted links, missing image files, crappy UI design - it's the WWW equivalent of a clapped-out '73 pinto.

    I assume the date - 5/09 - on the one sentence at the top is probably the last time the site was updated - 2009 - or 5+ years ago.

    The copyright at the bottom of the page is 2005

    That was Charles Bronson's mysterious "friend" in Death Wish 3.
    People used to say Eastwood used that gun in the "make-my-day" installment of his Dirty Harry movies, but that was an Auto-Mag, of course.

    I've seen them, if memory serves, they were very expensive.

    Looks like the result of a 1911 having a one night stand with a revolver without protection. :confused:

    Bronson's Wildey was chambered in 475 Wildey Magnum.caliber. In the movie he describes it as being " a cut down elephant cartridge" l could have bought one years ago for $1200. I have one cartridge in 475 Wildey magnum.

    Except in the movie "Sudden Impact", where Callahan replaced his Model 29 with a .44 Auto-Mag.
    There was a whole scene in that movie where he introduced that handgun.

    ...check it...

    Permanent hearing loss after only one magazine fired without protection?

    No morphing Mongo.
    It appears Sabertooth was correcting a post I made earlier, but had apparently forgotten about the segment I included in my last post.
    I was just showing Saber that wasn't always the case.
    ...also just noticed he mentioned the Widley in the DW3 was chambered for .454 Widley.
    I thought Widley only chambered those guns in .475 cal in those days (other calibers would be added later).

    Could very well be on the .475 didn't do much research, just looked up the Widley site when I found out they where being made again.
    Didn't see Sudden Impact. still haven't.
    My bad.
