The gun, a rare customized LeMat, actually fired ten rounds, not the seven seen in the show. After the series was canceled Dick Powell gave the famous weapon--the only one used in the series--to Don Durant, who still has it. See more »
This western series was short-lived ,but was well-produced by the great Aaron Spelling. Don Diamond was well cast and brought a commanding presence to the role of the reformed shootist.
The episodes I have seen were fast-paced and fairly realistic when compared to other shows of the era. Unfortunately, the airwaves were filled with cowpoke drama at the time and this interesting show quickly rode off into the sunset.
In many ways, this show compares favorably with Wanted:Dead or Alive , which made a star of Steve McQueen. Don Diamond was not so fortunate.
Some episodes are available on DVD, check them out.... Not half bad !
