About this title

Synopsis:

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. 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. 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 from Blue Book Publications, Inc. is sure to be enjoyed and appreciated by black powder enthusiasts worldwide. Not only are all the 2nd and 3rd generation Colt revolvers and variations depicted in color with specifications, but Uberti, Pietta, Remington, and many others are also included with descriptions. Whether you re a casual black powder shooter, SASS member, reenactor, collector, or history buff, Black Powder Revolvers - Reproductions & Replicas is sure to be a valuable addition to your library or coffee table. 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. Starting with a history of Colt s 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 America s most epic periods. Today s modern copies of these famous sixguns and their evolution from the first cap and ball revolvers of the 1830s to the metallic cartridge firing models of the 1870s and 1880s, unfolds in eight fact-filled chapters with some of the most lavish photography of any gun book ever published. Discover how modern machinery, quality conscious craftsmen, and engravers of the 21st century manufacture revolvers that rival the 19th century originals. Written and photographed by award-winning author and photographer Dennis Adler, this new and updated deluxe volume in oversized landscape format is based on Adler s 1998 book Colt Blackpowder Reproductions and Replicas, and now showcases the most recently manufactured makes and models. Black Powder Revolvers - Reproductions & Replicas is a must-have book for anyone who collects or shoots black powder revolvers.
