In 1836, Samuel Colt changed the face of warfare with the production of the primary of a series of iconic and influential single-action revolvers, including the .44-caliber Colt Walker and the seminal .45-caliber Colt Single Action Army, which remains in production these days. These weapons shifted the role of the pistol from single-shot weapon of last resort to a practical and powerful sidearm that gave the soldier the ability to defend himself once his number one armament used to be discharged. It transformed cavalry tactics and relegated the sword to a in large part ceremonial role in many armies.
Featuring full-color artwork, expert analysis, and gripping first-hand accounts, that is the absorbing story of Colt’s circle of relatives of single-action revolvers, covering their origins, development, use, and lasting affect at the brand new world.
