MODEL 1849 COLT POCKET REVOLVER MANUFACTURED IN 1857

$1,100.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1030-290

Presented here is a classic Colt cap and ball revolver commonly referred to as the 1849 Pocket Model. This personal sidearm, in very good original condition overall, features a 6” long, octagonal barrel matched to a .31 caliber, six-shot cylinder that has a roll pressed design retaining nearly all of the ‘stagecoach holdup’ scene. Original nipples. Safety pins are lightly hammered down. All serial numbers (#78911) match, including wedge. Number indicates a late 1857 date of manufacture. “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. Screw heads are in good condition.

Gun metal is smooth, clean and semi-bright. There are a few patches of pitting where the barrel and cylinder meet. Revolver is mechanically strong with good action but cylinder does not hold at half cock. Grips are of varnished, one-piece, walnut in very good condition. Strong and tight, grips have little wear. Back strap and the trigger guard are brass with approximately 98% of original silver wash remaining.

Here is a very good example of this Colt firearm with 6” barrel.  [jet]
