The Colt Single Action Army revolver has many names and is one of the most recognisable guns in the world.
This version has a 7 1/2" barrel and was issued to the US Cavalry in 1873. The 7 1'2" barrel was ideal for cavalry and was longer than the ones favoured by gunfighters. Gunfighters usually preferred a 4.75" or a 51/2" barrel as they where quicker to draw out of a holster.
The 71/2" barrel gave better accuracy than the shorter barrel Colt's, although the Cavalryman was issued a carbine the pistol or revolver was essential when fighting at close distances with Indians.
As well as the Colt, the US Cavalry issued several other revolvers including the Schofield Smith and Wesson and the Model 1874 Remington but this Colt Army revolver is the most famous partly due to the enthusiasm of Hollywood film makers to arm the US Cavalry with the Colt Army revolver.
This Colt Army revolver features:
The classic Army Peacemaker looks great in your office or den. Ideal for any western fan or will look good as part of a Vietnam Air Cav helicopter uniform.
The Single action Colt Army revolver was also know as the Peacemaker, the Frontier, Single Action Army (SAA) '45 and the Equalizer.
It was designed for the US Government trails of 1873 by Colts Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company and it was adopted by the Army and saw service until 1892.
This is the classic colt pistol as seen in almost every western and Cavalry film including: Fort Apache, Red River, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (John Wayne is using one), Rio Grande, Joe Kidd (Clint Eastwood is using one), Unforgiven, Tombstone and the TV series Deadwood.
