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 has a roll pressed design retaining some of the ‘stagecoach holdup’ scene. Original nipples. Safety pins are all hammered down. All serial numbers (239777) match, including wedge. Number indicates a mid-1863 date of manufacture. “ADDRESS COL SAML COLT NEW-YORK U.S. AMERICA” is clearly stamped on the top facet of the barrel. The standard “COLTS / PATENT” and “31 / CAL” are stamped on the left side of the frame. Screw heads are in good condition.

Gun metal is dark gray with some small dings around the wedge. Revolver is mechanically sound with good action but cylinder is a little loose. Grips are of varnished, one-piece, walnut in good condition. Strong and tight, grips have minor wear along bottom edges. On left side a 1933-dated identification is carved into the grip. Back strap and the trigger guard are brass with no traces of original silver-plated wash remaining.

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 good example of this Colt firearm.  [jet]
