At just 22 years old, Samuel Colt's creation of the six-shot Colt revolver stands as one of the greatest inventions of the nineteenth century. In 1836, the first Colt revolvers were made in Paterson, New Jersey, at the Colt Arms Company. Two years later, the famous Texas Pistol was put on the market. From that historic moment until present day, Colt has played a valiant role in every American military campaign and Western legends, helping forge the fame of such legends as Kit Carson, Buffalo Bill, Theodore Roosevelt, General George Patton, Wild Bill Hickok, Pat Garrett, and Custer.
Colt went on to produce the Colt Single Action Army handgun, also known as the Colt .45 or the Peacemaker, the standard service revolver of the U.S. military between 1873 and 1892. Today, Colt continues to produce firearms for our military, law enforcement, and commercial and international markets.
To date, Colt has produced more than 30 million pistols, revolvers and rifles. The immeasurable attention given to the smithing of every Colt is visible in the final finishing of frame and barrel as well as hammer, trigger, sear and safety device.

Constructed for exacting use and extreme round counts, Colt has packed the Combat Unit Rail Gun in a .45 ACP with many features for hunters or shooters in an accessory-ready platform. This Colt handgun features a dual spring recoil system, and has a segment of picatinny rail on the dustcover, which allows users to mount laser sighting aids, flashlights and other sights.
The tactical texture of the pistol remains rearward with cut checkering on the front strap of the frame. The checkering continues on the straight mainspring cover, contributing to a protected embrace when gripping the cover. The grips are constructed for solid, all-conditions handling, and the cohesive grip safety has a beavertail that curves up high for maximum grip depth, and a memory bump to ensure firm, confident engagement.
The controls offer quality performance with a smooth and clean magazine release. The slide stop/release is depressed into the frame of the handgun for an improved thumbs-forward grip, and the trigger guard is undercut, allowing for a firmer upper top grip. The rear sight is low-profile with a V-shape, and the front sight is a night sight dot complemented with a white ring.
The hammer limb is sleek, and the front of the slide has cocking grooves for ease of grip performance, making this handgun comfortable so that you can focus on accuracy.
