2019 SHOT Show Primer: Standard Manufacturing Single Action Revolver

by
posted on January 19, 2019
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 beautifully engraved single-action 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. The nickel-plated version covered here by American Rifleman’s Mark Keefe has a 5 1/2” barrel and has 75 percent scroll engraving, timed nitre blued screws and checkered Turkish walnut stocks. 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. Learn more in this 2019 SHOT Show primer.
