Collier flintlock revolvers are often credited with inspiring Samuel Colt and his revolving cylinder design. If you’ve never seen one function before, they feature several innovative mechanisms that make them as interesting as they are historic.
Less than 400 Colliers were made in total (including handguns and longarms), and numerous examples are in some of the world’s most renowned museums and collections. Adding to this rarity, in this video is the only known matched pair, both numbered 82.
Finely made, precision machines, this pair of Collier revolvers also feature several artisan touches such as engraving, checkering, fine wood, silver insets, and even hand-engraved markings.
