$1,895.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 766-1900

This Colt Model 1860 Army is serial #46859 and was produced in mid-1862. The serial number matches except for the wedge pin which is numbered “4670.” All metal surfaces are dark oil colored finish.

The round barrel measures 8.00 inches long with the blade shaped front sight present at the muzzle. Barrel marking is crisply stamped “ADDRESS COL. SAML. COLT NEW-YORK U.S. AMERICA. “The loading lever is complete with catch and operates properly. The barrel has very light scattered pinprick pitting near the muzzle on one side. The bore is dark with good rifling and a few scattered shadows from built up dirt.

The 6-shot cylinder retains approx. 70% of the cylinder scene and has all the original nipples in good condition. All but one of the stops is present. Action is good and the cylinder indexes correctly. Half cock safety is good. Hammer holds at full cock and the cylinder holds tight. The surface of the cylinder matches the rest of the weapon in appearance.

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

Walnut grips have light wear with a faint military inspector’s cartouche on the left side. Bottom of the grip has an inlaid silver plaque with the initials “LW” scratched into it. [ad] [ph:L]
