Standard Manufacturing offers everything from ARs to the double-barrel, pump-action DP-12, and now the New Britain, Conn., firm is in the revolver business. What could be more American than a beautifully engraved single-action revolver made in the U.S. of the finest materials? A classic single-action with a cone hammer and all machined parts—no castings or MIM—this revolver is faithful to the original Colt design, and that’s because craftsmen that used to work for Colt were instrumental in its creation and manufacture. Various barrel lengths, percentages of scroll engraving, finishes, and features such as timed, nitre-blued screws and checkered Turkish walnut stocks are available in this new line. Just so you know, the same guys who make A.H. Fox and Connecticut Shotgun Mfg. side-by-sides also make these elegant six-guns. stdgun.com
