History of Colt Firearms
Colt firearms company was founded by Samuel Colt in 1855. Colt had been making firearms since 1836 but was re-branded by Sam Colt to Colt’s Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company. Colt really begin gaining popularity around the 1850’s as it was one of the most popular choices for outlaws and sheriffs in the Wild West. During World War 1 the infamous M1911 .45 semi-automatic pistol catapulted Colt into one of the most popular firearms brand across the world. Colt himself did not invent there revolver but his designs are considered to be responsible for the first successful revolvers. The Colt Patterson revolver was Colt’s first revolver. Over the years Colt has developed revolvers that firearms enthusiast and collectors feel are the best revolvers ever made, with revolvers such as the Colt Python,Colt Boa, Colt Anaconda, Colt Diamondback, Colt Viper and many more. Colt was also the leading producer of M-16s and Ar-15s for decades, although they did not invent it. Colt has suffered over the years with several bankruptcies and financial failures. Experts say they relied heavily on Government contracts which they inevitably lost. Other manufactures started making AR-15’s and 1911 style handguns such as Bushmaster, Kimber, Armalite and Sig. Colt’s biggest success has come with collectors which now are paying top dollar for certain Colt handguns. Tim Malcolm from Sellyourcolt.com states “Colt never kept up with the change in trends among gun enthusiast of today’s time. Your younger crowd of gun lovers are buying assault style long guns and tactical handguns, the old timers who still prefer revolvers over automatics are a dying breed.You take a company like Smith and Wesson who was Colt’s biggest competitor during the 50’s all the way up to the 90’s and look what S&W has been able to accomplish. They came out with the M&P series which has given companies like Glock and Sig a run for their money. Smith is still making their classic revolvers and they have gotten government contracts for their handguns and long guns. In 2017 Colt reintroduced the Cobra in a new stainless model and rumors have surfaced that Colt intends to start making some of their classic revolvers again. At this point the only Colt firearms that retain any collector value are the Talo Colt verion 1911’s that usually are engraved, acid etched and limited edition. The .38 super Mexican themed versions are always the most popular and very hard to get.
