The Colt Model 1860 Army Revolver by Charles W. Pate
The definitive history of the Colt Model 1860 Army revolver. This book serves as a reliable, easy-to-use reference for the collector and military historian. Using records from the Colt factory, regimental books, Ordnance Department/Bureau and the Treasury Department and surviving examples of the revolvers, the author has amassed a database that contains approximately 8,000 complete pistols. First placed on the market only six months before the start of the war, the Colt Model 1860 Army Revolver quickly became the preferred sidearm for both sides of the conflict.
