    Winchester Revolver?

    Very cool. Prototype of a Winchester revolver was made in 1883. They obviously decided not to make revolvers. They should have. What do you think?

    Winchester and Colt came to an agreement not to make competing firearms, after both companies made some that both felt could cost them sales. Supposedly the Colt made a pretty good lever gun and Winchester made a pretty good revolver. I don't recall how many of each were made, enough to worry the other side.

    It does have some of the Remington’s lines up front, but the grip looks too small for the frame. .
    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union

    Small, smooth wood grips, with .45LC.

    That sounds like a recipe for, "Did anyone see where my gun landed?"
    We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other. - John Adams, 2nd U.S. President -

    More like,
    Could someone help dig this hammer out of the back of my hand?

    I actually saw that happen once when a dumbass tried to make a 12 gauge break open pistol with a 4" barrel. Buried the hammer in the back of his hand.
    Gun control is the ability to hit the target.
