Cowboy Jim wrote:This pistol was not used on Bonanza, but another David Dortort creation, The High Chaparral. It is a .45 caliber Colt Single Action Army. It is one of two used by Henry Darrow, as Monolito Montoya, on the show. The entire ejector rod housing and assembly have been removed and replaced by what is called a "conversion bar." The conversion bar gives the pistol the appearance of being an earlier, or older, pistol than what it actually is. In The High Chaparral section of this forum, there is a publicity photo that shows Darrow holding a pistol close to his face. This is the pistol in that photo.
