This 1884 era 4-3/4" 45 in factory nickel with walnut grips was owned by George Milas Lasater of Palo Pinto County Texas. I bought it from his great great grandson several years ago. George was born in 1852 to a cattleman's family and by the year 1865 after his father died he was managing the family cattle business. He grew up with several brothers in an area where fights with wild indians still happened from time to time. As a matter of fact Green Lasater, George's brother lost his scalp to the indians in 1871 during a run in with them. George served on the frontier battalion and as deputy sheriff as called upon. He became a very successful cattleman and ran for Palo Pinto County Sheriff in the fall of 1898 and won the election but before he could assume office he was thrown from a horse and suffered a head injury that led to his death 2 days later. Though not a "pretty" gun it is a fine example of the sidearm that the men of Texas carried.
