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 5” long, octagonal barrel matched to a .31 caliber, six-shot cylinder that has a strong, roll pressed design retaining nearly all of the ‘stagecoach holdup’ scene. Original nipples. Safety pins are all hammered down. All serial numbers (#177387) match, including wedge. Number indicates an 1860 date of manufacture. A light “ADDRESS COL SAML COLT / HARTFORD, CT” is stamped on the top facet of the barrel. The standard “COLTS / PATENT” is stamped on the left side of the frame. Screws are not buggered up and appear to be all original.

Gun metal is smooth and clear and exhibits much of the original case colors. Some dings on the right side near the wedge. Revolver is mechanically strong with good action. Grips are of varnished, one-piece, walnut in very good condition. Strong and tight, grips bear a few dings on the butt and one small chip missing at butt along the back strap. Back strap and the trigger guard are brass with traces of original silver-plated wash remaining, mostly 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. Here is a very good example of this Colt firearm.  [jet]
