Paterson revolvers pre-date the "Old West" by about 50 years. It patent date was 1836 and only produced until 1842.
The "Old West" was the 25 or so years roughly from 1865ish to 1890ish. And there were lots of under .36 calibre revolvers. Colts were horrendously expensive and few people could afford 'em. No cowboy(who didn't as rule carry or own any firearm) could ever afford one.
