The single-action revolver is alive and doing very well in this the 21st century because of its timeless appeal. A lot has been written on this subject over the 175 years since Samuel Colt patented his first SA cap-and-ball revolver in 1836. Boiled down, the gun type is still so appealing for five basic reasons:
- The Look
- The Feel
- The Power
- The Durability
- The Accuracy
The classic Colt SAA has sleek, graceful lines that have made it an American icon.
The shape of the traditional SA grip just feels right to a wide variety of hand sizes.
