Frontiersman Samuel Colt was late to the double action game; he considered the design to be unreliable. Twenty years after Colt’s patent expired in 1857, Colt attempted a small-frame revolver; the following year, 1878, the company’s large-frame double action came out, known as the Frontier Colt. In this 1880s photo, a buckskin-clad dandy sports his nickeled 1878 Frontier Colt on his hip.
