Click on an image to enlarge

This is a nice .44 caliber Civil War Colt "Army" model revolver. These Colt army revolvers were a favorite of any Civil War soldier that was lucky enough to be able to get one. The early versions of the 1860 Army model were designed with the 4-screw frame and this one is one of the first ones with only three screws in the frame. This has a dark gray brown patina all over with a well worn tone. Across the top of the barrel it has most of the Colt maker's mark and the New York City office location. These guns were actually manufactured in Hartford, Connecticut but New York City was the sales office location. It has matching serial numbers of 40,334 except for the modern made replacement barrel wedge. Thanks to Mr. Colt's bookwork we know that these serial numbers would have been made towards the early part of 1862. On the sides of the cylinder you can see a trace amount of the naval engagement scene. The side of the frame still has the very clear "COLTS PATENT" stamping that matches the one on the cylinder. The action is in functioning condition. The handle of the gun has the original 1-piece walnut grips intact with a nice 'used but not abused" look to the wood. On the left hand side of the grip you can see the inspector cartouche. This stamping plus the small initials on the other parts of the gun are the markings where the gun was approved by the U.S. Government inspector. It lets us know that this is a military gun rather than a civilian produced gun. The brass of the triggerguard has a very pleasing golden tone to the brass. The backstrap has an inspector initial "H" letter still faintly visible. This is a nice honest well worn model 1860 Colt patent army revolver that displays quite well.
