COLT POCKET MODEL REVOLVER CONVERTED TO RIMFIRE

$850.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 906-03

Presented here is a classic Colt revolver that was converted from percussion to rimfire. This personal sidearm, in good condition overall, features a 4 ½” long, octagonal barrel matched to a .38 caliber, five-shot cylinder with worn remains of the roll pressed design of the ‘stagecoach holdup’ scene. Cylinder converted to fit rimfire cartridges. Hinged loading gate added on right side. Hammer converted to strike rim on rimfire cartridges. Barrel, frame, and cylinder bear serial numbers #986, while the trigger guard and back strap have serial number #999. A clear “ADDRESS COL SAML COLT NEW-YORK US AMERICA” is stamped on the top facet of the barrel. The standard “36 CAL” is stamped on the left side of the brass trigger guard. 1871 and 1872 patent dates strongly stamped into frame on left side under the cylinder. Screws are not buggered up and appear to be all original. Gun metal is smooth and exhibits an even dark gray color overall. A few scattered dings. Revolver is mechanically strong with good action. Grips are of varnished, one-piece, walnut in very good condition. Brass back strap and trigger guard are bright with no traces of original silver plating. A good clean example of a Colt revolver that was converted from percussion to rimfire as small arms technology changed following the Civil War.   [jet]
