FRANKFORD ARSENAL US ARMY
INTERNALLY PRIMED PISTOL CARTRIDGES - .45 COLT & .45
COLT/S&W - EXCELLENT INDIAN WAR SPECIMENS:
These are individual collector quality revolver pistol cartridges
which were manufactured by the Frankford Arsenal and
issued to the soldiers during the Indian Wars Period.
The 1.6" long cartridge was
introduced in 1873 and was loaded specifically for the
Model 1873 Colt SA Revolver. This 1.6" long
cartridge was manufactured in 1873 and 1874.
1.4" cartridge was adopted after the introduction of the Model
1875 Smith and Wesson Schofield Revolver. Intended
to simplify the supply of cartridges to the regiments
which were carrying both revolvers, after 1875 the
longer 1.6" cartridge was discontinued and this 1.4"
cartridge was issued
for both the Colt and the Smith and Wesson pistols.
