The solid frame which is the ideal construction for a revolver that is to stand rough usage, was originated and perfected by the Colt's Company, and they regard the adoption of this arm by all branches of the Government service as the ultimate test of the success of their labors. It is made in a variety of sizes and styles to suit all shooters. A line of these revolvers is called the "Swing Out" cylinder, the cylinder being hung on a hinge which permits it to be dropped to one side so that all of the cartridges may be simultaneously ejected and all the chambers re-loaded with great rapidity before the cylinder is again returned to the shooting position.
