Colt Revolver - (Weapon United States) Glossary of Antique Terms C

Colt Revolver - (Weapon, United States) A percussion revolving pistol as made by the American, Samuel Colt. Most esteemed are his early 'Paterson' models, made at Paterson, New Jersey, 1836-42. Colt went bankrupt but returned to firearms in 1847 when the Mexican War brought him a contract for 1,000 revolvers and thus began the famous enterprise at Hartford, Conn., where all Colts were thenceforth made except for those produced at the London factory between 1853 and 1857.
