A Civil War Colt Model 1860 Army revolver in very good original condition. In production from 1860 through 1873, these handguns were the successor to the Colt Third Model Dragoon pistols. The Model 1860 Army was the major sidearm in use by U.S. troops during the Civil War with over 127,000 Colt revolvers acquired by the Union government during the conflict.

This revolver is a .44 caliber, three-screw model with a 6-shot rebated cylinder and an 8” long barrel. All matching serial numbers (138879) on the barrel, frame, trigger guard, butt strap, cylinder, and even on the wedge. Serial number dates the manufacture to late-1863.

Sidearm is equipped with recoil shield cutouts on the frame and the small notch on the base of the butt plate. Mechanics are crisp and strong. Barrel address, “ADDRESS COL. SAML COLT NEW - YORK U.S. AMERICA” is very readable. Most of the rolled cylinder scene remains visible. Patent date and serial number are visible. The “COLTS / PATENT” stamp on the left side is slightly worn toward the bottom. Original nipples are in good condition; safety pins are completely flat.

Brass trigger guard has a mellow golden patina. Gunmetal good bluing and is a very dark plum tone. Many parts feature a small letter stamped on them from an inspector. Grips are original one-piece walnut in good condition. Both cartouches are faintly visible. Initials “RC” are cut into the butt. Also seen on the butt are small cut-outs for a lanyard of sorts to be run under the butt strap.

This is a classic, war-time production “Colt Army” revolver in nice condition.  [jet] [ph:L]
