Patton's pistols

I have to confess, as much as I've studied Patton and read about him, I've just always assumed he carried a Colt 1873 "Peace Maker" - but doin' some quick research I've discovered I was wrong. He carried one Colt and one S & W Model 27 (actually, it was before S & W numbered pistols - N frame) with a 3.5" barrel. Pictures courtesy of Patton Museum at Fort Knox...
