On this day in 1836, Connecticut-born gun manufacturer Samuel
Colt (1814-62) received a U.S. patent for a revolver mechanism
that enabled a gun to be fired multiple times without reloading.

Colt founded a company to manufacture his revolving-cylinder
pistol; however, sales were slow and the business floundered. In
1846, with the Mexican War (1846-48) under way, the United
States government ordered 1,000 Colt revolvers. In 1855, Colt
opened what was the world’s largest private armament factory.
