Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 906-10

Presented here is a classic Colt cap and ball revolver commonly referred to as the 1849 Pocket Model. This personal sidearm, in good original condition overall, features a 4” long, octagonal barrel matched to a .31 caliber, six-shot cylinder that retains a strong, roll pressed design retaining nearly all of the ‘stagecoach holdup’ scene. Original nipples. Safety pins show wear as some are good and a few are smashed down. All serial numbers (#115565) match, including wedge. Number indicates an 1856 date of manufacture. A clear and sharp “ADDRESS COL SAML COLT / NEW YORK CITY” is stamped on the top facet of the barrel. The standard “COLTS / PATENT” is stamped on the left side of the frame but the word ‘PATENT’ is worn. Screws are not buggered up and appear to be all original.

Gunmetal exhibits small scattered areas of original colors as well as scattered light pitting. The overall color is a dark gray. Some dings along the side edges of the barrel. Revolver is mechanically strong with good action. Grips are of varnished, one-piece, walnut in good condition. Strong and tight, grips bear no chipping but does show some light wear along butt edges. Back strap and the trigger guard are brass with traces of original silver-plated wash remaining, especially around trigger.

Known as the successor to the Baby Dragoon, the Model 1849 Pocket was a small version of the Model 1851 Navy revolver and proved ever popular through its end of production in 1873. [jet]
