This revolver designed by Captain Eben Swift, of the Fifth United States Cavalry, and Mr. Lovell is .38 caliber and double action. It is an extremely well made arm, combining all the best features of the standard revolvers of its class. The terrific recoil of the old Army .45 caliber Colt revolver made it an object of dread to most officers and men. To avoid this recoil and at the same time produce the maximum stopping power were considerations which led Captain Swift in his co-operation to produce this new model.
