The Colt Thuer conversion is acknowledged as Colts first metallic cartridge revolver which was produced from 1869 to 1872, long before the single action army model appeared on the horizon. One of the unique features of the Thuer was the ability to easily switch to the percussion cylinder which came in handy if the user ran out of metallic cartridges, yet had percussion caps, black powder and ball ammo. This 1860 Colt "Army" also bears a well aged set of ivory grip panels.

Mercury fulminate or Hg(CNO)2, is a primary explosive. It is highly sensitive to friction and shock and is mainly used as a trigger for other explosives in percussion caps and blasting caps.   Mercury(II) fulminate is prepared by dissolving mercury in nitric acid and adding ethanol to the solution. It was first prepared by Edward Charles Howard in 1800.[1] The crystal structure of this compound was only determined in 2007.
