To accomplish this, examples of .22 calibre handguns from 1855 to the mid-1870s have been examined and photographed, and a system of identification has been structured. By using this system, one may determine styles used within a particular manufacturer, or to compare similar styles used by more than one company. Among the manufacturers covered are: American Arms Co., Colt, Hopkins & Allen, Marlin, Reid, Remington, Smith & Wesson, Whitneyville, and many others.
