What was the main weakness of Colt revolvers, comparing to its competitors?

Posted by :oliverstone276


Samuel Colt missed a great opportunity in firearms development when he dismissed an idea from one of his gunsmiths, Rollin White. White proposed a "bored-through" revolver cylinder to allow the use of metallic cartridges in a handgun. After Colt fired White for suggesting an improvement to his revolver, White took his idea to Colt's competitor, Smith & Wesson, who patented his invention and kept Colt from being able to build cartridge firearms for almost 20 years.

Options are

1.Low speed
2.Low durability
3.Lack of possibility to use metallic cartridges
4.Poor shooting precision
