This is a very attractive original and popular Colt revolver known to collectors as the "Root” model. This one is .28 caliber and has the classic model 1855 sidehammer design. The action works well on all positions. The original grip is present has a fine dark look to the walnut with a very pretty grain. The grips still have a nice amount of the original factory varnish and they are the high quality burl walnut. The serial numbers are all matching at 8,570 which would have been made in 1856 which was the 2nd year of production for this pattern of revolver. You can see that the gun has some of the original factory bluing on the parts. It is definitely a step up from most of the ones that you encounter. Across the top of the 3.5 inch barrel is the clear Colt maker’s mark as well as the Hartford, Connecticut location of the Colt factory. At the end of the barrel it has the brass bead style front sight intact. On the sides of the cylinder you can still see some of the original Indian and cabin cylinder scene. What makes this gun display so well is that it comes nicely encased in a modern casing. The casing has the tannish red felt lining. It has a compartment for the gun as well as one for some bullets. In the other compartment it has a beautiful REPRODUCTION Colt's Patent marked eagle flask. This is a beautiful original .28 caliber Colt "Root” Revolver from the 2nd year of production with a fine display casing.
