Weekend Photo: A New Single Actions, Three Old Double Actions


    Julian, TFB’s French translator, sent us photos of his single action revolvers. The Ruger Vaquero, pictured above, is chambered in .45 Long Colt. The Ruger Vaquero was introduced in 1993 and is a popular Cowboy action gun.

    The photo directly below is of a Colt Model 1902 “Philippine”, not to be confused with the Colt M1902 semi-auto pistol designed by John Browning. The Model 1902 is a variant of the Colt M1878 double action revolver for a US Army contract to equip the Philippine Constabulary.

    The bottom photos is of two Colt Model 1896 double action revolvers. The Model 1896 is a variant of the Colt M1892.
