advertisement from a 1912 issue of the Saturday Evening Post.


Transcript:

This compact little COLT “Six-Shooter” is only 4 1/2 inches long, weighs but 13 ounces, yet has the speed, accuracy, and hard-hitting qualities that give confidence in an emergency.

Shoots metal-jacketed bullets as fast as the trigger is pulled; ejects the empty shells and reloads automatically for each shot.

Combined with these features is ABSOLUTE SAFETY FROM ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE — the Grip Safety automatically locks the action until the trigger is purposely pulled — no worry on your part.

“You Can’t Forget to Make it Safe!”
