On this edition of Curator's Corner, John Popp talks with NRA National Firearms Museum Senior Curator Phil Schreier about an 1849 Colt Pocket Revolver. A little more than 300,000 of these unique guns were produced through the model run. However, considering that they came with a five shot cylinder and was less than accurate after 25 yards, the production number is a bit surprising. Originally aired 3/22/2012.
