Wade Winterburn

Colt did not see this gun until 1849 while in London procuring patents


I would agree with Mr. Winterburn. He very knowledgable in this field.


Isn't it possible Colt was actually inspired by other designs and made up the ship's wheel story to avoid troubles with, i.e. paying or otherwise crediting, other inventors?

Cogswell pepperbox is nice too


What great technology! Plus technology keeps getting more economical now, and that’s what people really notice. Wind energy, solar power, hybrids and zap EV’s, our choices are good. There are now electric cars being sold everyday, you just plug it into a regular power outlet. When people test drive them they say it’s far more fun to drive an EV.
