Item No.: 10158 Price : SOLD
Item : FINE COLT MODEL 1849 POCKET REVOLVER, 6" BARREL
Description :
Here is an original, Colt Model 1849 Percussion Pocket Revolver manufactured in 1853. This is a .31 caliber, 5-shot revolver with a 6" 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 has all matching numbers including the wedge. The cylinder and frame have a pewter gray patina, leaning towards brown on the cylinder. The case color on the loading lever has turned gray. The barrel retains about 60% of its original factory blued finish. The trigger guard and grip straps retain about 80% of their silver plating. The gun works well mechanically, but could use a little lubricant. The bore and chambers have some rusting present and need a good cleaning. The wooden grips are in good condition with a number of small dings from use. Stock no. 29356
