Samuel Colt


American inventor and industrialist. He founded Colt's Patent Fire-Arms Manufacturing Company (today,Colt's Manufacturing Company), and made the mass production of the revolver commercially viable.

Colt's first two business ventures — producing firearms in Paterson, New Jersey, and making underwater mines — ended in disappointment. But his business expanded rapidly after 1847, when the Texas Rangers ordered 1,000 revolvers during the American war with Mexico. During the American Civil War, his factory in Hartford supplied sidearms to both the North and the South. Later, his firearms were prominent during the settling of the western frontier.

Colt died on 10 January 1862 as one of the wealthiest men in America.
