Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection
The Patent Arms Manufacturing Company produced approximately 1,000 of its "No. 5" or "Holster" size revolvers between 1838 and 1840. Beginning in the spring of 1840, the cylinders were modified so as to have a rounded breech end. The U.S. government purchased 150 of these revolvers, 100 for the Navy in 1841 and 50 for the Army in 1845, all with 7 ½" barrels. The Republic of Texas also purchased this revolver (but with 9" barrels) for its navy, with 180 bought in 1839. These later revolvers were subsequently issued to the Texas Ranges.
