There’s going to be a Dark Tower movie starring Idris Elba.
This comes from a Stephen King book that I have not read, but the gun details have over the years trickled into my consciousness nonetheless.
Main character Roland carried a “.45 Magnum” six-shooter. Which would be a robust piece. This thing Elba has looks robust enough.
In the book I understand Roland’s piece had ‘Sandalwood’ grip panels. Ya know who knows a lot about six shooter grip panels? Me. Sandalwood is a bush right…(?) I haven’t actually understood Sandalwood to yield a wood kernel big enough for single action panels. Call it fictional license on King’s part. If you could render panels from Sandlewood, I think they’d be creamy yellow. Elba’s panels appear to be typical brown walnut.
