This antique 1849 Colt Pocket Model revolver is .31 caliber with a 4" barrel and five shot cylinder. The revolver has a well aged speckled gray brown patina on the barrel and cylinder. The frame has aged to a dark brown. The silver plated brass triggerguard has only traces of the plating visible in recesses that are rarely handled. The walnut grips have a well aged patina with wear on the edges, and many small scattered handling marks,

The top of the 4" barrel is stamped Address Sam Colt / New York City in two lines. The barrel is fitted with a small bead front sight. To maximize sight radius the hammer has a "V" notch to act as the rear sight. The cylinder is factory engraved with the classic stagecoach scene, which is very faint. The serial number on the frame, triggerguard, backstrap, cylinder, and barrel match. The serial number would indicate manufacture circa 1856. All the nipples in the cylinder appear to be antique, we did not attempt to remove them.

Two screws in the frame appear to be modern replacements, both have a much lighter gray finish and the slots are crisp. The stamped marking on the front left hand side of the frame is only partially visible. The bore has scattered pitting over the full length. The action works correctly but does require a very deliberate pull to the full cock position to allow it enough time to latch.

Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted. Else if it does not fit you, return it in unfired condition for same-day refund. Postage is your only risk, when you order any one-of-a-kind gun from Track, whether new, used, or antique.
