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 4” long, octagonal barrel matched to a .31 caliber, five-shot cylinder that has a roll pressed design retaining much of the “stagecoach holdup” scene. Original nipples. Safety pins are all hammered down. All serial numbers (88475) match, including wedge. Number indicates that this was manufactured during the second half of 1854.

“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 dark gray overall; some case colors remain on lower frame. Octagonal barrel has some dings and scratches. Revolver is mechanically sound with exception that cylinder doesn’t spin at one particular location (it does spin past this spot once you wiggle the cylinder). Cylinder freely spins at half cock.

Grips are of varnished, one-piece, walnut in good condition. Strong and tight, grips have minor wear along bottom edges. Back strap and the trigger guard are brass with perhaps 80% 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 very good example of this Colt firearm.  [jet]
