Were self cocking revolvers available at the presumed time that this episode was set?

Did you mean in the old west episode ("A Town Called Mercy")?

I don't remember a hard date for that episode, but a google search tells me that Colt patented their first double action (self cocking) in 1877 and began selling them in 1880. That fits into the old west era, so it doesn't seem totally out of place.

(And obviously they'd exist in "The Power of Three" because it's set in the present )

Yes, I posted in the wrong thread, thanks for answering anyway.

He just seems to be recycling.
I suspect he doesn't have an original idea in his head.

Not sure why you think Moffat recycles -- look at the brilliant originality displayed in the Doctor/Amy story arc in series 5, for example:

-- The Doctor visits with a young girl at various points in her life. She thinks of him as her imaginary playmate while a child, but as she ages she realizes he is something more and is in fact from another world. In the end, he saves her from a great evil and she, in turn, saves him

Oh, wait, or was that "The Girl in the Fireplace"?

Moffat does like recycling his ideas, indeed...
