Click on an image to enlarge
This is a great looking gun! It is a fine original .31 caliber Colt revolver with ivory grips. This is the style known to collectors as the Colt model 1849 "pocket" model. They get their nickname of the "pocket" model because of their size in comparison to their contemporary .44 caliber Colt brother the "Dragoon "which is massive in comparison. It fires five shots of .31 caliber from the full-length 6 inch barrel. It has all-matching serial numbers of 66,008, except for the barrel wedge, which is an original replacement with another number. With Mr. Colt's fine bookkeeping we know that this gun would have been manufactured in 1853. What separates this gun from the rest of the guns that are out there is the original ivory grips on the handle. The grips have a beautiful milky tan color from age and display superbly as you can see in the images. The barrel is full-length at desirable 6 inches and you can clearly read the double line maker's stamp across the top of the barrel. It reads "ADDRESS SAMl COLT NEW YORK CITY". The cylinder has a superb amount of the original stagecoach hold-up scene still visible. Also on the cylinder it has the "COLTS PATENT" mark and the serial number. The action works well on all positions. One thing that makes this one display even better is that it is accompanied by the bottom half f a high quality wood casing. The case still has the 1854 patent date still visible in the wood. Inside the case, it has a pistol size powder flask with the animals on the side. The spout is loose on the top of the flask. It also has a paper container for percussion caps as well as a few original lead bullets. You get the pistol as well as the partial case, caps and flask. This one is a beauty and will be a solid addition to any firearms collection.
