In 1836 Samuel Colt is issued the US Patent for the first Colt firearm and builds his first factory. Colt has been providing quality firearms for the US military throughout history and continues to do so today. The Colt Single Actions Army revolver is undoubtedly the most famous handgun in firearm history. Today the tradition continues as the Single Action Army is made the same way in the hands of Colt's accomplished technicians and machinists.

Colt's manufacturing process relies on the precision of both modern technology and professional craftsmanship to produce the quality our customers have come to expect. Colt has been delivering the world's finest, innovative firearms to Law Enforcement throughout history, including delivering a large number of revolvers to Teddy Roosevelt while he was NYPD Commissioner.
