In the winter of 1861/62 J.H.Dance & Brothers of Columbia (first capital of Texas) started the production of revolvers. The pistols were probably inspired by the Colt Dragoon and 1851 models of the period. The prototype was presented on April 22, 1862 and was soon considered to be superior to the best Colts. The Dance is easily distinguishable by its lack of recoil shield on the frame, round barrel and squareback trigger guard.
