Hitting the shelves in 1958 with decidedly tough competition in the form of the company's first line of baseball statues, the Hartland Plastics "Gunfighter" series held its own with ten feared marksmen. Here are (3) such examples that hail from an era in which the lawless West was the favorite setting for television and radio. With movable arms and Western-themed apparel, the statues include:

Chris Colt #761 of the series, this Chris Colt example has minor paint loss on his powder-blue suit coat buttons. Matching cowboy hat accompanies, though pistol accessory is missing. Interestingly, though most of Hartland's period brochures showed Colt with jet-black hair, most examples (like this one) portray him with blonde hair.

Bret Maverick clad in a black coat with holster at his side, this #762 Maverick figurine has very minor scrapes about his legs (gray pants) and comes with a pistol and white cowboy hat accessories.

Jim Hardy a tan jacket, blue pants and black gloves/boots comprise the ensemble for this #764 Hardy statue, whose legs are blemish free. The black cowboy hat and pistol accompany, and there is minor paint loss on his jacket buttons.
