Description

This big, powerful .44 caliber black powder revolver is the famous magnum developed with the help of Captain Samuel Walker of the United States Mounted Rifles. It saw extensive service in the Mexican War. The largest of all Colt revolvers and authentically reproduced, it weights a mighty 4 pounds, 8 ounces, has an overall length of 15-3/4 inches, with a 9-inch precision rifled barrel. This is a six-shot revolver with handsomely engraved cylinder and barrel marked "U.S. 1847." In this day of modern handguns, this is still one of the most powerful revolvers ever made. The Mexican War was the reason which led again to arms manufacture by Colt after the financial setback which followed the company's first production of Paterson revolvers. 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 by induced to part with them at any price. CALIBER .44, WEIGHT 4 LBS. 8 OZ., BARREL 9 INCH RIFLED, LENGTH 15 3/4 INCHES. Has some very miner handling marks.
