Item No.: 9443 Price : $1,450.00
Item : 1858 MFG. COLT MODEL 1849 POCKET PERCUSSION REVOLVER, .31 CALIBER
Description :
Here is an original, Colt Model 1849 Percussion Pocket Revolver manufactured in 1858. This is a .31 caliber, 5-shot revolver with a 4" barrel. Produced continuously from 1850-1873, the M1849 Pocket was tremendously popular, and over 350,000 were made. Approximately 280,000 had been produced by the Civil War's end in 1865. The M1849 went west on the Oregon Trail and traveled to the California Gold Fields. Thousands were privately purchased and carried by soldiers of both sides during the Civil War. After the war, thousands more were again carried into the great American West. It is an iconic American firearm. This revolver is in fine condition. It is all matching including the wedge. It has about 60% of its original blue finish left on the barrel. This finish is beginning to turn brown and has a speckling of brown overall. The cylinder has turned a smooth brown with a strong rolled scene. The case colors have faded completely leaving a light pewter gray behind. There is some case color left on the loading lever. The trigger guard and grip strap have about 60% of their silver plating remaining. Almost all of the finish wear is on the back strap. This gun's mechanics work very well. The bore and chambers are dark, but the rifling is strong along the barrel's length. The grips are in fine condition with traces of varnish remaining. This is a nice early pre-war Colt Pocket Revolver. Stock no. 25357
