This is a pretty old thread, so I hope further posting in it isn’t an issue.

The most compelling evidence IMO for the “Buntline” are the letters that Stuart Lake wrote trying to find it or information about it. He would have to be a first class hoaxer to do that, especially since he never produced the revolver.

I recall reading that Buckskin Frank Leslie had a 10” SAA while living in Tombstone. I don’t recall if Leslie had his Colt before or after Earp was there. But that gun could be the source of the myth, even if only seeing it inspired Earp to add some color to his reminiscences.
