Some Bisley info:
In 1895, Holland & Holland the famed London gunmaker, advertised the New Colt Bisley Revolver.
The town of Bisley, England was the site of major British shooting matches. In 1894 Colt made an effort to market this new revolver which was an outgrowth of the modifications urged by popular demand on the Single Action. Longer grip straps, heavier frame, a lower and wider hammer spur and full width trigger all were incorporated into this new design in 1894.
Today, the Bisley is often copied but never duplicated. The last one, Serial Number 330,184 left the factory Nov. 18th, 1919.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” ― Samuel Adams
