A cap and ball percussion sidearm, this specimen is a complete Civil War Colt Model 1860 Army revolver in very good original condition. In production from 1860 through 1873, these handguns were the successor to the Colt Third Model Dragoon pistols. The Model 1860 Army was the major sidearm in use by U.S. troops during the Civil War with over 127,000 Colt revolvers acquired by the Union government during the conflict.

This revolver is a .44 caliber, three-screw model with a 6-shot rebated cylinder and an 8” long barrel. Strong rifling. Grips are original one-piece walnut in very good condition with no visible cartouches. It does show some light, minor dings at the wedge area. Revolver has matching serial numbers #85617 on the barrel, frame, trigger guard, butt strap, cylinder, and wedge. Serial number dates the manufacture in the very early portion of 1863.

Sidearm is equipped with recoil shield cutouts on the frame and the small notch on the base of the butt plate. Mechanics are perfect. Barrel address is clear and reads “ADDRESS COL. SAML COLT NEW - YORK U.S. AMERICA”. Cylinder scene is complete and visible. The “COLTS / PATENT” and “44 CAL” marks on the left side are sharp and clear. All nipples original and in fine condition. All cylinder safeties still protrude. Screw heads are in very good condition. Brass trigger guard shows only traces of silver plating. All gun metal exhibits similar light wear and typical plum colored patina.

This is a classic, wartime production, three-screw Colt Model 1860 Army revolver in very desirable condition.  [jet]
