A Study of Coltís New Army and Navy Pattern Double Action Revolvers


By Robert Best

If you are looking to get great information on Colts Army and Navy revolvers (1889-1908) this is the book for you! Bob helped me research my own revolvers shown on my web site, he has done a excellent job researching these fine historic pistols and is a absolute gentleman and a pleasure to have learned from. He just finished this book (Nov. 2004) and has limited copies so I recommend you contact him ASAP for your copy. I have included this on my site as a service to the collecting community and I am not receiving any funds in this endorsement. Regards, Ty Moore
