Welcome to the 19th century when men were men and a .45 caliber slug settled more arguments than lawyers! Back in the Old West, the black powder revolver ruled the roost and everyone from Civil War soldiers to town marshals, Texas Rangers, and saloon girls was packing a six-shooter. Black Powder Revolvers Reproductions and Replicas takes you back to those days of old with a rousing history of the guns that settled not only the Civil War but the American West. Even though films and television have made the Old West a little bigger than life, the guns of the era are as real as Wild Bill Hickok, Wyatt Earp and Buffalo Bill Cody. Starting with a history of Colts revolvers from the 1830s Patersons to 1862 Pocket Models, and continuing through the major competitive makes of the 1860s, this book will give readers an insight into the guns and gunmen from one of Americas most epic periods.Black Powder Revolvers - Reproductions & Replicas by Dennis Adler is the only publication in print covering the wide variety of reproduction black powder revolvers manufactured since 1959. Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of stunning color images, this newest deluxe book in oversized landscape format is sure to be enjoyed and appreciated by black powder enthusiasts worldwide.
