• Antecedent revolvers
• Multiball cartridges
• Adoption of the version “P”
• Serial numbers and sales
• adaptations and objective types
• Patents and pirates

Parsons widely compares and contrasts the Peacemaker to the Schofield Smith & Wesson and the Remington and different opponents and illustrates its importance in American historical past. With unique images of many infrequent revolvers and weapons, it is a must-have for firearms enthusiasts.
