In 1836, Samuel Colt received a U.S. patent for a revolver mechanism that enabled a gun to be fired multiple times without reloading. By the start of the U.S. Civil War, he had made the Colt revolver perhaps the world’s best-known firearm. The Colt Single Action Army handgun, better known as the Colt .45, was not released until a decade after Colt’s death in 1862. Dubbed the “Peacemaker” and “the gun that won the West,” the Colt .45 served as the standard service revolver of the U.S. military between 1873 and 1892.
