Original Confederate Colt, The
William A. Albaugh III and Richard D. Steuart
Manufacturer part number: 1-56837-262-0
A definitive work which will make possible the positive identification of Leech & Rigdon and Rigdon-Ansley revolvers and explode the myths of there being other 'Confederate' Colts. In Scholarly detail the authors trace the development of the partnership that supplied the Confederacy with these handguns. As the war progressed changes in design were effected which in later years caused considerable confusion among collectors. Albaugh and Steuart dispel all doubts by thoroughly covering each issue, each change and finally offer standard measurements and markings for these revolvers. 62pp.
