Excellence & Quality in a Firearm
The Colt legend started in 1836 with the first Colt firearm equipped with a revolving cylinder containing five or six bullets. Samuel Colt’s revolver was not an instant success; many people preferred the traditional flintlock musket or pistol than a revolving cylinder. Also in 1836, Sam Colt built one of the country fastest-growing manufacturing centers in that time located in Paterson, New Jersey. During this process, Colt developed and produced three new revolver models: the pocket, belt, and holster; and two types of long armor rifles: one cocked by a hammer, the other by a finger lever.
In 1851 Sam Colt became the first American manufacturer to open a plant in England. Colt’s factory was equipped with the most up-to-date metalworking machinery available and was capable of turning out 5,000 finished handguns during its first year of operation. By 1856, the company was producing 150 weapons a day; and the reputation of Colt firearms for exceptional accuracy, reliability, workmanship, and design had spread throughout the world.
