The Colt Model 1860 Army Revolver is the most iconic handgun of the Civil War. In this groundbreaking new study, noted researcher and author Charles W. Pate presents the entire story of the Model 1860 from its development and the supervision of Sam Colt to its procurement by the United States military and commercial customers. The revolvers of the Union forces are very carefully examined, as are those New Model Colts used in the Confederate States of America, including captured guns. Of particular value to collectors, there are detailed sections on variations within the Model 1860, including all the markings, finishes, shoulder stocks and deluxe decorations that are likely to be encountered. Revolvers used aboard U.S. Navy and U.S. Army ships are also studied, as well as those revolvers carried during the period of the Indian Wars. Many of those fine weapons come with detailed histories, which bring to life the experiences of the men who trusted their lives to the effectiveness of this beautiful and meticulously constructed handgun. No enthusiast of Colts of American military handguns can afford to do without this uniquely detailed look into one of the nations most important pistols. Hard cover 462 pages 8-1/2 by 11 format.
