About this title

Synopsis:

For decades, one of the most tantalizing guns in America has been the Darling Pepperbox. The Darling brothers filed their patent for a revolver mechanism just seven weeks after Colt did. While Colt went on to riches and fame, the Darlings died in poverty, and their unique revolving pepperbox is one of the rarest guns known to collectors. Many have claimed that it was the Darlings, not Colt, who were the real inventors of the revolver, but is this true? This inexpensive new book explores the Darling story, answering questions that have plagued collectors for generations.
