A Civil War Colt Model 1860 Army revolver in 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, four-screw model with a 6-shot rebated cylinder and an 8” long barrel. All matching serial numbers (35595) on the barrel, frame, trigger guard, butt strap, cylinder, and even on the wedge. Serial number dates the manufacture to early-1862.

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 strong. Some details of the rolled cylinder scene are still visible. Patent date and serial number are visible. The “COLTS / PATENT” and “44 CAL.” stamp on the left side remain fairly strong. Original nipples are in good condition; safety pins smashed down.

Brass trigger guard has a mellow golden patina. Gunmetal is semi-bright with darker spotting overall. Many parts feature a small letter stamped on them from an inspector. Grips are original one-piece walnut in good condition. One cartouche on right side is faintly visible.

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

SCARCE NEW MODEL 1865 SHARPS STILL IN PERCUSSION NEAR FACTORY NEW

There are no appreciable differences between the NM1863 and NM1865 Sharps other than the stamped model designation by the company, and its occasional absence, which some have speculated was due to worn out or broken old dies, or was a marketing ploy… (490-2531). Learn More »
