Probably the most famous of the Old West guns, the Colt six-shooter became renowned as the ‘gun that won the West’.
Popular with the military, agents of the law, and with criminals, it was said by a former train robber that ‘a Colt’s forty-five makes all men equal’.
The Royal Armouries is fortunate enough to have on loan the Colt that belonged to rancher John Tunstall, whose murder ‘Billy the Kid’ set out to avenge in 1878.
