Weapon a cavalryman will know how to handle? (4)
I believe the answer is:
'weapon' is the definition.
Although both the answer and definition are singular nouns, I don't understand how one could define the other.
I don't understand how the rest of the clue works.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for colt that I've seen before include "Young Arab maybe" , "Youngster" , "Type of American revolver" , "H [HORSE]" , "Mount" .)
