revolver.The Peacemaker revolver, also known as Single Action Army (SAA), was designed by Samuel Colt in 1873 and was produced with different lengths of cannon: the short version of 4.75 inches, the longer versions of 5, 5 and 7.5 inches or the impressive 12-inch “BuntlineSpecial”,
initially used by the US Army, but within a few years, most American citizens received one of these revolvers, and the fact that he used ammunition of the same caliber as the Winchester M1873 rifle contributed to its popularization as a short weapon in the old American West in late nineteenth century.
Curiously, this revolver has received numerous nicknames. In addition to the aforementioned Peacemaker, he was also known as Frontier or Widowmaker, referring to the ease of this revolver to the left of widows among the wives of the time.
The film industry has mitigated the “Peacemaker” in the westerns of the 40s and 50s, and has been associated with big screen stars like John Wayne or Gary Cooper. Even Roosevelt had one engraved with his initials and George S. Patton used two.
