A replica model of the “gun that won the west”. The iconic revolver is known for playing a massive part in American history. The first patented and manufactured revolver was the Colt Paterson Revolver. Patented in 1836 and manufactured circa 1837 or 1838, the Paterson Colt was the first practical “revolving pistol” and revolutionized handguns for all time. Despite its failure as Samuel Colt’s first firearms business venture, this percussion five-shooter gained fame when it was put to deadly use against the Comanches by the early Texas Rangers, most notably by Ranger John Coffee Hays when he used a pair of them to successfully hold off an overwhelming party of Comanches in 1841, during what became known as Hays’ Big Fight at Enchanted Rock.
