This big, powerful .44 caliber black powder revolver was developed with the help of Captain Samuel Walker of the United States Mounted Rifles. It weights a mighty 4 pounds, 8 ounces, has an overall length of 15-3/4 inches, handsomely engraved cylinder. The Mexican War was the reason which led again to arms manufactured by Colt. Urged by a Government request for one thousand pieces and following Captain Samuel Walker's advice, Colt patented this weapon. The biggest handgun ever made. The gun was then bound to arm some of the Texas Rangers who engaged in the Mexican War. Lt. Col. George A. Caldwell later said, "Two years' experience in Mexico enables me to speak with confidence of the value of Colt's revolvers. Those who had them there could not be induced to part with them at any price.
