The Colt 1873 Single Action Army revolver was arguably the best-selling pistol ever produced. Colt single actions were manufactured in numerous calibers. The Colt Single Action in .22 L.R. was very popular because the ammunition was cheap and had light recoil for a full-sized revolver. The Stallion, a scaled-down version of the Colt Single Action Army, is available in both .22 L.R. and .38 Special. The bird's head grip design was not new when Colt introduced the full-sized Lightning and Thunderer six-guns in 1877. The grip design had been used on Colt Derringers since the 1850s. Regardless, the Old West cowboys came to call these 1877 models Bird's Head Colts.
