60 Army tech
« on: October 04, 2017, 11:42:52 PM »
In one of my old books, it is described that Colt tapered the inside of the 60 Army chambers so that the breech area would be stronger after complaints of bursting/bulging cylinders.

Also, that the barrel was originally going to be 7 1/2 in, and that is why the loading lever is set back from the end of the barrel.

They had a few blow in trials. I think because the bolt notch made them too thin in that spot.
