Not only Colt and Ruger, but Smith & Wesson and Savage made single shot pistols built on the frame of a revolver, the Savage being made to look like a Single Action revolver. Let me correct that statement: The Savage pistol was not made on any existing revolver frame, but was a totally new pistol.
For awhile, there was a place for a good single shot target grade pistol. I believe Stevens made a top-break single shot and Remington tried a rolling block pistol.
And who can forget the Remington bolt action XP-100?
