Item Code: 906-17

Manufactured from 1860 until 1873, this model revolver was very popular with Civil War officers and civilians during that time period. Similar to a Model 1851 Colt Navy with the exception of being a smaller frame revolver. The frames are almost identical with the pocket model. The most obvious difference is the fluted 5-shot cylinder and the round barrel. Barrel length is 4 ½” with Colt marking, “Address Col. SamL Colt New-York US America” visible on top. The fluted cylinder retains much of its bluing and is marked “PAT. SEPT 10TH 1850”. All nipples original and in excellent condition. Safety pins are in pretty good shape. Frame has “Colt’s/Patent” left side. Back strap and trigger guard nice yellow patina. Wood grips original and in good condition. “36 cal.” marking on left side of trigger guard. All serial numbers matching, #18111. Mechanically perfect! Sharp crisp action. Barrel and loading lever have dark gray color with smooth surfaces and no pitting. A number of small dings around wedge on right side of barrel; common from trying to get wedge out. Frame, cylinder, and hammer retain some original finish colors. A nice Colt revolver manufactured during the Civil War.  [jet]
