TonysTake Who owns Colt now? I remember controlling interest in some firearms companies were bought by George Soros connected companies. Accounting troubles sounds a bit fishy. Maybe we will see a resurgence of their revolvers if either of those two pick them up as that is a market neither has entered. Corporate hollow men interested in the bottom line. The last group that came in ran the company into the ground and then left with their pockets full. Colt has committed suicide for 40 years or more. It costs much less as long as modern machines are used. Colt needed people to fit the less refined forgings and machined parts of the past. Colt ignored the customers along the way.

It is a desirable collectible due to its rarity. The date of that occurrence used to be set at but Mike Venturino has reported instances of factory chamberings dating back at least to , IIRC.

Resurrecting the 44 colt
Among many Peacemaker fans, there’s a misunderstanding of the terms “black powder” frame or “smokeless” frame, so let’s clear the smoke. The “black powder” moniker comes from the fact that, the first Peacemaker Colts were made with a cylinder base pin retaining system that used a single screw, located at the front of the revolver’s frame. In , at around serial number , , Colt changed over to the so-called “smokeless” frame, where the cylinder base pin is held in place by spring-loaded cross-pin screws.
The Colt Single Action Army, also known as the “Peacemaker”, is a single action revolver. It was designed for the U.S. cavalry by Colt and adopted in , Designer(s): Colt.
Purpose[ edit ] The primary purpose is to be a handy all-in-one projectile, right quantity of propellant, primer for a shot. In modern, automatic weapons, it also provides the energy to move the parts of the gun which make it fire repeatedly. Many weapons were designed to make use of a readily available cartridge, or a new one with new qualities. The cartridge case seals a firing chamber in all directions excepting the bore.
A firing pin strikes the primer and ignites it. The primer compound deflagrates , it does not detonate that is, it rapidly burns, but does not explode. A jet of burning gas from the primer ignites the propellant. Gases from the burning powder pressurize and expand the case to seal it against the chamber wall. These propellant gases push on the bullet base. In response to this pressure, the bullet will move in the path of least resistance which is down the bore of the barrel.
After the bullet leaves the barrel, the chamber pressure drops to atmospheric pressure.

For me, that gun was a six-inch barreled Colt Python. I had some good reasons for not buying it. I was in the US Army at the time, stationed at Ft. The year was , and I was a PFC assigned to a motor transport company. Your gun had to be registered with the company and secured in the armory. It had to be checked out and turned back in like any other weapon, and personal concealed carry has been strictly forbidden on stateside military bases since the Nixon administration.
So after thinking about it, I decided against getting the gun.
