“God made men, but Sam Colt made them equal,” was an Old West saying referring to the Colt .45 “Peacemaker.” When the 1873 Single Action Army (SAA) hit the market, the U.S. Army purchased 93,000. Custer’s troops at the Little Big Horn were armed with the new revolvers and lawmen and outlaws alike were quick to adopt the new six-shooter.
