A look at Sammy Davis Jr.'s custom Colt Single Action revolver (VIDEOS)

Besides being a talented performer and founding member of the Rat Pack, Sammy Davis, Jr. was an accomplished trick shooter.

He also reportedly loved to target shoot and was a guest star on a number of popular Western TV shows of the 50s and 60s such as “The Rifleman,” “Zane Grey Theatre,” and “Wild, Wild West” where he got to use hardware on screen.
