Colt Peacemaker SAA CO2 Revolver Kit
Colt Peacemaker SAA Revolver, Nickel is a good revolver for around 100-125 rounds of.45ACP. The CO2 chamber is slightly longer than most, but I think it’s worth it. I’m not as impressed with it at 50+ rounds per CO2.
It feels good in the hand, well balanced. The trigger squeezes easily, almost too easily but perfect. The nickel finish with the black grip looks good. I believe the.177 pellet version has a rifled barrel? I don’t think that the.177 would be as good as the.22.
Everything else is awesome. If you love the old west, buy this gun. ProsIt’s a great gun, it looks beautified and realistic. ConsI don’t like the plastic handles. ProsVery fun to use. Good for cowboy action shooting ConsSometimes pellets get stuck in the casing, but this is probably the type of pellets I’m using.
This is a great revolver, similar in many ways to my Colt Peacemaker, but without the noise, recoil, and danger. The realistic look of the cartridge and the opening of the cylinder make this a fun shooting experience. I was able to hit targets pretty consistently.

Colt Single Action Introduction
A single action revolver is the best handgun for a revolution. This single-action revolver, or SAA is one of the most famous firearms ever made. It was designed in 1872 for the U.S. government service revolver trials and was adopted as the standard-issued pistol of the U.S. Army in 1873 until 1892.
The Colt Single Action Army has been offered in over 30 different calibers and various barrel lengths. It’s overall appearance has remained constant since 1873, when it was introduced. Colt has cancelled production twice, but has brought it back for a third time due to continued demand for the original revolver.
Colt revolvers were dubbed as the “Peacemaker” due to their reputation in the American Wild West era and were associated with the cowboy, lawmen, and outlaws alike.
The guns were initially produced for collectors and re-enactors of historical events. The design has influenced the production of numerous other models from other companies. The original length of the barrel was issued to the United States.
The standard-size Colt revolver was 7+1⁄2 inches (19cm) in overall length.
The Colt Frontier Six-Shooter
The Colt Frontier or Frontier Six-Shooter was a Colt’s 1873 model “P” type revolver manufactured in.44-40 Winchester caliber. It was a single action revolver which was compatible with the Winchester Model 1873 ammunition.
The Colt Single Action Army was also originally called the Frontier Six-Shooter. It had a six-shot cylinder,.36 caliber rimfire, and a short-recoil action, a double-action revolver. It was one of the first commercially produced repeating handguns.
The Colt Frontier Six Shooter designation applied to the.44 WCF/.44-40 Winchester cartridge. The last Colt to wear this title was the Bisley 1895 Model. This cartridge would later be the standard chambering for the new, immensely popular, Winchester Model 1873.
Users of the.44-40 Winchester cartridge in the Far West appreciated the convenience of being able to carry a single caliber of ammunition that could be fired in both revolver and rifle.
One of the most commonly used combinations in “the old west” was the Colt Frontier Six Shooter Revolver and the Winchester Model 1873 or the Winchester Model 1892 in.44-40 WCF caliber. For example, the two mounted cowboys at the Gunfight at the OK Corral were firing these.
After the Battle of Shiloh, a Union sharpshooter named Corporal Benjamin H. Brierly, while shooting at Confederate soldiers, had his ammunition seized by Confederates, who then killed him. He was unarmed, but he still managed to kill 16 Confederates, making him a Sharpshooter and Hero of the Battle of Shiloh.
The Bisley Model
The Bisley target pistol has been around since the 1890s, when it was produced in England. It is the best target pistol made today.
The revolver’s barrel length depends on the caliber. The.41 calibre is shorter than the.38 calibre, and so on. The different calibres have different barrel lengths.
The serial numbers were stamped on the frame, the backstrap and the trigger-guard at the end of production, with tiny dies. Bisleys were serial-numbered in the range of 156300–331916, in the same sequence as the Single Action Army.
The Production of the Bisley was terminated in 1912, but serial No. 331916 was shipped after the First World War. Most of the Bisley Standard Model Revolvers shipped to a United States address were not used for target shooting, but for self-defense, because the grip and hammer were ideal for fast shooting. Surveys of existing Bisley show that a much larger number of 4+3⁄4in (12cm) Bisleys, perhaps as high as 62%, have survived as compared to the 5+1⁄2″ and 7+1⁄2″ barreled guns.
Considering the majority of Bisleys were made in.32/20 and.38/40, some 60%, it appears that the market for SAAs was changing. The late 1890s with increased urbanization in the West suggests the possibility that many of these pistols were companions to the lever-action rifles of the same period and that the low slung hammer, less humped backstrap, and short barrel may have suited the city-dwelling suit-coat-wearing clientele who still found themselves outdoors not only on horses but in buggies and automobiles.
It is important to have a means of stopping a man-stopping bullet if you are out hunting in a city or semi-urban area. A pistol like the Bisley is suitable for that.
The Bisley marks a movement toward a more civilized West.
Colt engraved approximately one percent of the first-generation production of the Single Action Army revolver, making these engraved models extremely rare and valuable with collectors. Engraved pieces were often ordered by or for famous people of the day, including lawmen, heads of state, and captains of industry. This tradition began with the founder, Samuel Colt, who regularly gave such examples away as a means of publicity for Colt.
In addition to using some engravers from Europe, Colt employed a number of skilled American artisans. Some of these engravers included, Gustave Young, Cuno A. Helfricht, Rudolph J. Kornbrath, and Louis Daniel Nimschke. They were known for inscribing gold, silver, and precious stones in their work.
Engraved Colt.45 Single Action Rifles were often adorned with stocks made of ivory or pearl, with engraving and inlays as well. About 400 of the Second Generation Colt Single Actions were factory-engraved by Colt.
Alvin Herbert and Earl Bieu are the most sought-after engravers of the Colt Revolver period. Steve Kamyk and Leonard Francolini were also good engravers who worked on Colt revolvers. Alvin White was one of the best known engravers of the period.
The Colt Single Action Army is one of the refinements that Colt developed for its percussion revolvers. It was made for maximum velocity and power, and it’s one of the firearms that were the basis for the modern production of the 1911 military and commercial semi-automatic pistol.
The trigger of a revolver engages the sear portion of the trigger when depressed and pulls the hammer back and to the rear. The hammer when fully depressed and resting within the frame allows the barrel to be rotated freely.
Single-action revolvers have a hammer that holds the firing pin of the cartridge in a cocked position out of contact with a chambered cartridge. This design allows the revolver to be loaded with all of the chambers.
With the invention of the safety notch, percussion guns were no longer restricted to the use of the percussion cap, and a greater variety of propellants could be used, as long as they remained within the safe operating limits of the gun.
Many users adopt the practice of leaving an empty chamber under the hammer, because a sharp blow could damage the mechanism and allow a fully loaded revolver to fire.
This is now universally recommended practice in firearms. Draw the hammer back to half cock and then, while holding it, rotate the barrel until the bolt locks into position, then drop the hammer fully back into battery. The gun will be ready for firing.
The fully loaded revolver is ready to fire. To remove the cartridges, first push down the locking mechanism at the front of the cylinder and release the latch. Pull the top of the cylinder away from the body of the revolver and rotate the top out to release the cartridges.
For maximum safety you should load each chamber, skip the next, load the remaining four chambers, close the loading gate, draw the hammer to full cock, and then lower the gun. This will ensure that the firing pin is over the empty chamber before the gun is fired.A comparison of the effects of amitriptyline and citalopram on the activity of rat brain monoamine oxidase in vitro.
To fire the revolver, you have to cock the hammer and pull the trigger. You can do this by tapping the trigger and holding the hammer in a horizontal position. You can then “fan” the hammer (keep the hammer open) and fire as fast as you can.
Ed McGivern disproved the myth of the inaccuracy of this procedure. He shot tight groups while fanning the revolver.
