Click on an image to enlarge
This is an original Civil War .44 caliber Colt revolver. This is the classic Civil War .44 Colt that is also known as the Army model 1860 of Colt. It has serial numbers of 24,944 on all of the major parts including the original barrel wedge. These numbers let us know it would have been manufactured in 1861. This is the earlier production that has the 4-screw style frame and is also cut on the frame to accept the shoulderstock. Across the top of the barrel you can still see the Colt Maker's mark and New York City location. These guns were manufactured in Hartford, Connecticut with the sales office being located in New York City. The action works well on all positions. The metal of the gun has has been polished to a very bright shine all over. You can still the "COLTS PATENT" marking on the side of the frame and traces of the marking on the cylinder. It has an original 1-piece walnut grip intact on the handle of the gun. On the bottom of the grip it has "M.C. Grafly" engraved into the metal. This styel of engraving is usually done after the Civil War, sometimes in the veteran timeframe, and it is priced accordingly. The records show that a Milton C. Grafly appears on the rolls of Company H, 6th Pennsylvania Cavalry, enlisting on September 21, 1861. He is listed as being discharged on a surgeon's certificate, however the cause and date of his discharge are unknown. Grafly apparently was subsequently employed by the Reading Railway for many years after his military service. His regiment was raised by Colonel Richard H. Rush in Philadelphia, Montgomery, and Burke counties, the regiment was sent to Washington D.C. and was assigned to the Army of the Potomac. Curiously, from its very beginning the regiment was fully armed with carbines and pistols, but rather a nine-foot Austrian pattern lance with a fearsome eleven-inch triangular blade, only twelve carbines being issued per company for the purpose of picket duty and skirmishing. However, as could be expected, the weapon proved completely inadequate against even the most obsolete Confederate weapons and were abandoned after the Battle of Chancellorsville. This is a good looking and tough to find four screw framed Colt army model revolver from the Civil War with all matching serial numbers.
