It has been argued that the British Bull Dog Revolver was the actual Gun That Won The West - a type of solid-frame pocket revolver that was immensely popular in the late 19th century.
The British Bull Dog was designed in England in 1868 and was soon copied - officially and unofficially - in Belgium, Spain, France, Pakistan, and the USA, and kept on being produced into World War 1. The Bull Dog is a short-barreled double-action revolver with a short grip and swing-out ejector, intended to be carried in a coat pocket. US Army General George Armstrong Custer is said to have wielded British Bull Dogs at the Battle of the Little Bighorn.
