This is an original Civil War .44 caliber Colt revolver. This is the classic Civil War .44 Colt that is also known as the Army model 1860 of Colt. It has serial numbers of 6,863 on all of the parts including the barrel wedge. The gun is accompanied by a letter from the Colt Company telling it's history. The gun was shipped from the Colt factory on August 15th 1861 as part of a 500 gun shipment. It was sent to The New York Arsenal at Governor's Island, New York. This is the earlier production that has the 4-screw style frame and is also cut on the frame to accept the shoulderstock. Across the top of the barrel you can still see the Colt Maker's mark and New York City location. These guns were manufactured in Hartford, Connecticut with the sales office being located in New York City. The action works well on all positions. The metal of the gun has a gray tone all over with the look of a gun that has been in service. You can still the "COLTS PATENT" marking on the side of the frame and traces of the marking on the cylinder. There is about half of the cylinder scene still visible. It depicts the Engagement between the Texas Navy and the Mexican Navy. It has an original 1-piece walnut grip intact on the handle of the gun. On the left hand side of the grip, you can see the inspector cartouche where the gun was approved for military service. This stamp along with the sub-inspector initials on the parts let us know that the gun was a military gun rather than a civilian gun. This is a good looking and tough to find four screw framed Colt army model revolver from the Civil War with military markings.
