A pretty interesting look into the history and development of the Colt Patterson No.5 pistol... They use a reproduction for obvious reasons, and pyrodex for demonstration purposes but it’s a really well done episode and looks to be the first in a new series.


And while it’s outside the realm of blackpowder and muzzleloaders, for anyone interested their Primer series on WWI small arms is excellent as well.

I love Colt Patersons partly because I grew up in that area of NJ.

I'd like to find a decent used repro.

I was interested to see the young lady who did the actual hands-on part of the loading and firing. Her name is Mae, and she featured in a delightful video called Mae and the Wall Gun. She's tough. Check out the slow motion recoil.
