I recently had the pleasure of reviewing a Colt Peacemaker, single-action .357 revolver. I shot a 3rd generation model, made between 1972 and 1975, with brown-stag bone grips. Just holding this firearm in my hand felt like getting a history lesson. It is incredibly beautiful, and this particular gun amazed me that it could be nearly a decade older than me and still retain its looks and sturdiness. It became clear to me, standing in front of an assortment of Colt revolvers and holding the oldest one of them that Colt makes firearms that will stand the test of time.
