This is a great looking gun! It is a beautiful original .31 caliber Colt revolver. This is the style known to collectors as the Colt model 1849 "pocket” model. They get their nickname of the "pocket" model because of their size in comparison to their contemporary 44 caliber Colt brother the "Dragoon "which is massive in comparison. It fires five shots of .31 caliber from the full-length 6 inch barrel. It has all-matching serial numbers of 31,021 ,including the wedge. With Mr. Colt’s fine bookkeeping we know that this gun would have been manufactured in 1852. What separates this gun from the rest of the guns that are out there is the overall condition of the gun. The barrel is full-length at 4 inches and you can clearly read the double line maker’s stamp across the top of the barrel. It reads "ADDRESS COL SAMl Colt NEW-YORK CITY”. New York City was the location of Colt's sales office with the actual production of the gun taking place in Hartford, Connecticut. The cylinder has a very amount of the original stagecoach hold-up scene still visible. Also on the cylinder it has the "COLTS PATENT” mark and the matching serial number. The action works on all positions. The brass of the backstrap and trigger guard still retain a superb amount of the original silver wash from the factory. The metal parts of the gun still retain a very pleasing amount of bluing from the factory in the protected areas. The gun comes nicely encased in an original wooden case of the era. It has a nice iron bullet mold present as well as the percussion cap tin and the shell pattern powder flask. It also has some original bullets molded during the time of use that are correct for this model gun. If you wanted a very pretty original 31 caliber Colt revolver in the case than this one is for you.
