This is a great looking original and tough to find Cooper patent revolver. Upon 1st glance these guns look like a Colt revolver until you notice the oversized triggerguard. This is the .31 caliber made by the J.M. Cooper firm of Pennsylvania and is so marked along the top of the barrel. It still reads clearly on the marking of "COOPER FIREARMS MFG. Co. FRANKFORD PHILA. PA PAT JAN. 7 1861 APR. 25 1854, SEP 4 1860 SEP. 4 1860 / SEP. 1 1863 SEPT. 22, 1863 ” It has matching serial numbers of 9,549. In Flayderman's guide he states that they only produced about 15,000 of these revolvers in the 31 caliber version like this one. The neat thing about these Cooper pistols is that it is a double action revolver. The action rotates when you pull back the trigger. The cylinder works just as it should. The original grips are intact and have a wonderful look to the walnut wood and still retain a fine amount of the original varnish. This is the version that has the brass triggerguard and backstrap and you can see that have some of the original silver finish in the protected areas. The barrel still has a fine amount of the original factory bluing and the frame has some of the factory case coloration. This is a very nice looking large brass triggerguard Cooper patent revolver.
