About the Gun

The Colt Single Action Army was designed for the US government service revolver trials of 1873 and was ultimately adopted as the standard military service revolver. A venerable single-action six-shooter, the gun is also known as the Colt .45 and sometimes as The Equalizer or Colt Peacekeeper. Single Action Army revolvers are categorized by generation. The first generation revolvers were produced between 1873 and 1940. Second Generation Colts were produced from 1956 to 1974. The Third Generation ran from 1976 until 1982 and became a limited-issue product. In 1994, production resumed and is known either as 'Late Third Generation' or sometimes Fourth Generation.

About the Cartridge

This cartridge was developed for Winchester's Model 1873 rifle. It is yet another example of an early centerfire, black-powder cartridge that has been used in both pistols and rifles. While it is greatly outperformed by the .44 Remington Magnum, this caliber is making a comeback in Cowboy Action Shooting events.
