Fairfax, Virginia - After completely depleting our cache of Curator's Corners from last year's Tulsa Arms Show, NRANews hustled on over to the National Firearms Museum to start shooting another next series of shows with Senior Curator Phil Schreier. First on the list is an 1849 Colt Pocket Revolver.
Weighing in at just over a pound and a half, the Colt Pocket was not exactly a powerful gun. Made for a .31 caliber ball or bullet, this single action saw a little more than 300,000 produced through the model run. Considering that it came with a five found cylinder and was less than accurate after 25 yards, the production number is a bit surprising.
