This is a great looking gun! It is an original factory engraved .31 caliber Colt revolver. This is the version that is officially known as the Colt model 1849 and was nicknamed the "pocket” model by collectors. This nickname comes since the other model they sold was the huge dragoon revolver made this regular sized pistol look like it was a pocket version of the dragoon. It has all matching serial numbers including the wedge, of 31,080 which would have been produced in 1852. If you notice, beside each of the serial numbers it has the dot punch mark. This is the mark that lets us know that it was pulled off of the assembly line for special order decoration. The gun is engraved in the style of the famous Colt engraver, Gustav Young. He was the premiere artist that made Colt famous for work such as this. Since it is not signed by his we can’t say for sure that he personally engraved the gun but it has several of his characteristics. When you cock back the hammer you can see the wolf’s head design on each side and on the right hand side of the barrel breech you can see the dog head design. The frame of the gun has the intricate floral engraving and the hand engraved "COLTS PATENT” marking. The top of the full-length 4 inch barrel it has the engraved "SAML COLT” maker’s mark. The triggerguard and backstrap are also beautifully hand engraved and each piece still retains about 90% of the original silver wash. The action works correctly on all positions. The stock of the gun is made of the beautiful burl wood walnut and they have a fine overall appearance that is a step above the usual grips you encounter. This is a very pleasing original factory engraved .31 caliber Colt revolver with Young Shop engraving.
