Here's what the readers are saying:
“This book, without question, will become one of the
absolute best sources of information regarding the line of
Colt “serpent” firearms for decades to come. While numerous
books have been written on Samuel Colt’s Single Action Army
revolvers, there has never been an authoritative reference
book done on these double-action revolvers—that is, until
Chocked full of detailed four-color images (including
several gatefolds), the historical background information
provided dovetails perfectly with the Colt factory archived
serial number ranges. From variations of grips to sights to
grip medallions and finishes, each section also identifies
on a scale of 1 to 5 which variations are the most rare.
To get to the bottom line, I didn’t think it would be
possible in this day and age to collect the volume of
hard-to-find information you have compiled between the
hardcovers of this book. Any owner of one of these Colt
“serpent” handguns will want this tome in their firearms
