Re: Ducks Foot Pistol
OK, we agree he did not invent the revolver, as assumed by many even today. I dont know enough about him to argue the interchangeability thing, but to say, with all due respect to Colt, it was being done by the Birmingham gun trade at the same time.
I must add, I love Colts and have handled and fired many. At least two seriously, a 1911 and M4. I even handled, with cotton gloves, a early Colt revolver presented by him to Prince Albert, Queen Victorias husband. It is in the Royal Armouries Collection.
