Single Action Sixguns


The Definitive, fully illustrated reference work

By John Taffin

No firearm is more easily recognizable than the 1873 Colt Single Action Army Revolver — conjuring up images of Theodore Roosevelt in the Dakotas, Lt. George Patton with Black Jack Pershing in Mexico and the Earps and Doc Holliday at the O.K. Corral.

Colt’s famous six-shooter is one of hundreds of models of single action revolvers that have been used in battles across the continent. Packed with more than 350 photos and thousands of facts about single-action revolvers from 1850 to today, this definitive guide captures a history beginning with Samuel Colt and ending with Bill Ruger, John Linebaugh and Dick Casull.
