This is an original leather holster for the Colt model 1849 revolver that is referred to by collectors as the Colt "pocket model” revolver. They get their nickname because the gun was small in size compared to the standard .44 caliber Dragoon revolver that was so popular at the time. The leather is the very high quality version that is covered with tar. This process was referred to as "asphaltium” which was used for several purposes during the Civil War. This is designed to go with a revolver that has a barrel length of 5 inches. The holster has the brass stud style finial intact and is solid as a rock. On the back side of the holster it has had the belt loop replaced somewhere along the line but is now solid enough to be worn on the belt even today. A wonderful addition for your .31 caliber 5 inch barrel length Colt revolver.
