Our Assessment: Few guns have ever impacted America like the Colt Single Action Army. The gun was carried by soldiers, villains, lawmen, judges and even working women of-the-day and the Colt literally had a hand in transforming the American culture as we conquered the West. Today, no image of a cowboy is complete without a Single Action on his hip. This Colt was chambered in a Winchester caliber, .32 WCF, intended to make the life of a frontiersman a bit less complicated by chambering pistols and rifles in the same caliber.
