Got some serious facial hair going on there, but a cool dude non-the-less. He came up with an American classic and probably didn't even know it.

Thanks for the post. When I first saw it, I didn't know who hw was. Wikipedia has a very good
summary of all this guy did, 125 patents to his name for firearms and ammunition manufacturing.
He also worked for Remington and Winchester in addition to Colt.

I had created a thread that addressed this topic--several years ago. I will resurrect it shortly.

In any event, there was not just one father, but two: Richards & Mason.
