From the world’s finest collection, the 100 most significant Colt revolvers are presented for the first time in this handsome volume.

The Colt revolver “won the West” by being the handgun of choice on the American frontier, used by everyone from settlers and Native Americans to law-enforcement officers and outlaws. As a result of their shared history, the Colt revolver and the American West will forever be connected.
