The Single-Action Army Revolver was produced in several forms and many calibers from 1872 to 1940, with production totaling about 350,000 pieces. As its introduction coincided with the settlement of the Wild West, the names Peacemaker, Frontier Six-Shooter, and Widowmaker were popularized. Although most were produced for the military, civilian versions were beautifully engraved at the factory. Within a few years, most of the American citizens got one of these revolvers. The fact that it used ammunition of the same caliber as the Winchester M1873 rifle helped its popularization.
The film industry mythified the "Peacemaker" in the westerns of the 40s and 50s, and it was quickly associated with big screen stars like John Wayne and Gary Cooper. Also, U.S. President Roosevelt had one personalized with his initials engraved, and George S. Patton used two.
