06/03/1836 Samuel Colt patents the first production-model revolver

Colt made his first production model of „Revolving gun“, few days after submitting an American patent for it. It was also roughly a year after his British patent. It protected the principles of his revolving-breech loading and folding trigger named the Colt Paterson. He took a loan to bring his idea to market.
