Item No.: 8064 Price : $1,095.00
Item : COLT MODEL 1849 POCKET REVOLVER, 6-SHOT, 6" BARREL
Description :
This is an original, Colt Model 1849 Pocket Revolver manufactured in 1864. This revolver has a desirable 6" barrel and a 6-shot cylinder. Shorter barreled, 5-shot pistols were far more common. It is .31 caliber. The M1849 Pocket was produced from 1850 until 1873. More of these were produced than any other Colt percussion arm. They were carried pretty much anywhere on the planet that folks felt the need to carry a gun. This revolver is in very good to fine condition. It appears to have been touched up with an old re-blue. It retains about 80% of this finish. The markings are clear and the rolled cylinder scene is in great condition. The receiver is dark, but appears to have some case color swirls remaining. The brass grip straps have a nice even yellow brass patina. The bore is dark with some pitting. The mechanics are fine with tight lock up. The grips are complete with no chips or cracks. There is a little wear at the edges of the butt, and there are a couple of tiny dings from use. The gun is all matching including the wedge. The M1849 is a classic American firearm with a lot of history. Stock no. 21211
