This Colt Model 1860 Army is serial #147044 and was produced in late 1863. The serial number matches except for the trigger guard which bears #26438 which was produced in early 1862. All metal surfaces are gray in color with moderate to heavy dark oxidation.

The round barrel measures 8.00 inches long with front sight and a strong barrel marking of “ADDRESS COL. SAML. COLT NEW-YORK U.S. AMERICA.“  The loading lever is complete with catch and operates properly. The barrel and loading lever have no pitting but there are some vice marks. The bore has good rifling but is badly pitted near the muzzle.

The 6-shot cylinder retains about 85% of the cylinder scene and has all the original nipples in good condition. Each of the stops is worn. Action indexes properly. Half cock is a bit sloppy at times but does hold. Hammer holds at full cock as well but cylinder will turn also. The surface of the cylinder matches the rest of the metal surfaces.

The frame has three screws and is strongly marked “COLT’S PATENT” in two lines below the cylinder. Screw heads are good and show little wear. The frame has no pitting and matches the rest of the weapon in color.

Walnut grips have light wear with a faint military inspector’s cartouche on the left side.

Lastly, just to be clear, except for the trigger guard, all the serial numbers match, including the wedge.  [ad] [ph:L]
