Ans.: Samuel colt, founder of Colt’s Patent Fire-Arms Manufacturing Company (now known as Colt’s Manufacturing Company), and is widely credited with popularizing the revolver. After his return from england, Colt applied for a patent for a “revolving gun”, and he was granted the patent on 25 February 1836 (later numbered 9430X). This instrument and patent No. 1304, dated August 29, 1836, protected the basic principles of his revolving-breech loading, folding trigger firearm named the Paterson Pistol. He never claimed to have invented the revolver, as his design was merely a more practical adaption of Collier’s revolving flintlock, which was patented in England and achieved great popularity there.
