ARTISTRY IN SINGLE ACTION

Foreword by J. Evetts Haley

This first publication of Chama Press recounts an
intriguing bit of Texas history - the story of the
first sixgun made in Texas since the Civil War and
the fascinating story of the eccentric genius who
produced what many authorities consider some of

Artistry in Single Action also relates the colorful
history of the handgun and the Lone Star State's
long-term love affair with it. It briefly covers such
colorful sagas as the volatile career of Samuel Colt
and his famous Walker Colt (the Texas Ranger's
gun) and the equally famous Peacemaker.
J. Evetts Haley, one of the Southwest's most beloved
