Click on an image to enlarge
This is a beautiful gun! It is an original .31 caliber Colt revolver. These revolvers of this model are known to collectors as the "pocket" model since they were of good size but a lot smaller than their Dragoon size contemporary Colt revolver. Across the top of the full-length 6 inch barrel it has the famous Colt maker's mark. These Colt model 1849 revolvers has a total production of 330,000. This is one of the few that were sold to Colt's English market. We know it is an English gun because of the multiple English proof marks. This one has matching production serial numbers of 261,514 on the parts except for the loading lever which is an original with another number. According to the Colt book this number would have been made in 1864. This one has a gorgeous dark color all over and it still retains a very nice amount of the original case color and bluing. This one has the beautiful brass backstrap and triggerguard. On the brass you see a beautiful amount of the original factory silver. The action works crisply on all positions. You can still see about 80 to 85% of the stagecoach scene on the cylinder. On the handle of the gun it has the original 1-piece walnut grips intact with a superb amount of the original varnish remaining. This beautiful gun comes in the original case. These London cases are easy to spot because of the way the nipple wrench tool stands up in the case wall divider. This one also has the iron bullet mold with the Colt maker's mark still clearly visible. Also present in a nice powder flask, gun tool, oiler and the cleaning rod. It also has the fine Eley Brothers labeled tin of percussion caps. One thing that makes the box stand out is that it has the original paper instruction label on the top of the inside lid of the box. Most of the time these labels are missing but this one is still in nice shape. The box itself measures 12 inches by 6-1/4th inches and stands 2-1/4th inches tall. This is a beautifully displaying set that anyone would appreciate!
