3:10 to Yuma, “Hand of God”
Working from detailed close-up photos of the movie gun, this reproduction took more than sixty hours and seven prototypes to create and is extremely close to the original. From start to finish there will be over twenty-three hours in making each reproduction grip for you. The inlays are hand cut, take over an hour each and are flawless. The grip is African Ebony, not plastic or walnut. The inlay sits on a slight angle, just like the movie gun. No one else has this detail correct.
Simply put, no other reproduction can hold a candle to this one.
The gold alloy is not cheap brass or bronze. It is a custom formulated (expensive) alloy used in making 18k gold. This means it has the exact color of 18k gold and it will not tarnish as fast as other alloys. These crosses and all silverwork are cast by me, in my studio. Note that “gold plated” crosses by other makers will have the plating wear off in a year or two. Mine are solid Gold Alloy, Sterling Silver or Solid Gold. They are not plated.
This is as close to the real thing you can get without buying the original.
“A museum quality piece”.
Three versions of the crucifix were made for the movie. One version is on the gun Russell Crowe had made for himself. His gun and crucifix did not appear in the movie. Two other versions were in the movie. They were on the firing and non-firing guns in the film. I have meticulously reproduced the one seen in the stagecoach scene in the beginning of the movie.
You have four choices of metals. A custom formulated gold alloy, sterling silver, 14k gold and 18k gold. The grip is real African Ebony not plastic or walnut.
Below are the prices for the custom blended gold alloy, Sterling silver, 14k gold or 18k gold. You can have the crucifix on one side of the grip or both. In the movie it’s on both sides.
Turnaround for this grip is about eight to ten weeks. The process is labor intensive and begins when I receive your gun/s.
Prices are for one-piece African Ebony grips with the crucifix hand inlayed.
Gold Alloy One side = $300.00 Both sides = $350.00
Sterling Silver One side = $350.00 Both sides = $425.00
