Manufacturer part number: 0-7858-2305-0
Colt Single Action chronicles the entire history of Sam Colt's developments in handguns from the first Paterson revolvers through the legendary 1860 Army, and from the time of death in 1862, the evolution of cap-and-ball revolvers into the cartridge models carried during the Western Expansion of the 1870s. Author & photographer Dennis Adler takes you on a pictoral voyage through history with striking studio photography of the world's greatest Colt revolvers, factory archival images and original patent drawings, and tales of the soldiers, lawmen and lawbreakers who made Colt revolvers part of American history. 324pp.
