    Smith & Wesson Revolver during The Philippine-American War 1899-1902

    I was told that during The Philippine-American War, a special? or M&P? smith & wesson revolver was developed just to stop Moro Warriors because previous model they were using had inadequate stopping power.

    Is that true?

    No the 1911 Colt was developed after this war because the previous revolver caliber(s)? were found to be inadequate.

    No, he's right...

    There was even a special gun designed to kill Filipinos, the Colt.45 1902 "Philippine Model", where only 4,600 were made.

    Bear in mind, the average filiino is 5 foot 5 inches and 145lbs.

    I guess, they use the Barrett .50 for filipinos my size.

    ".45 Colt" could be confusing.

    When Anthony says ".45 Colt," he's talking about a revolver caliber. It's a big old black powder cartridge that was chambered in the old Colt Single Action Army. It's said that when the Moros wouldn't fall to .38 revolvers, the army dusted off the old Single Action Armies in .45 Colt to make a step up in power. Sources conflict on this. I'm not sure about it. The .45 Colt is a big case and can push heavy bullets pretty fast when loaded right--it encroaches on .44 Magnum territory and some say it can even outdo the .44 Mag. in a strong enough firearm.

    Now, when the "1911 Colt" is mentioned, then we're talking about the Model of 1911 pistol designed by God's emissary to America, John Moses Browning.


    I'd never heard of the 1902 model revolvers. . . cool.
