Click on an image to enlarge
This is a very nice looking original Civil War 5 inch barrel length version .31 caliber Colt revolver. This is the classic version known to collectors as the model 1849 "pocket" model Colt. It has all matching serial numbers of 61,612 except for the modern made replacement the wedge. The number on the cylinder is matching but in my opinion it has been stamped in more modern times. These numbers let us know that the gun would have been produced in 1853. The brass trigger guard and backstrap have a nice look to the brass. The mechanics functions nicely on all positions. The top of the barrel has the double line Samuel Colt maker's mark and New York City location. New York City was the location of the sales office with the actual production of these revolvers taking place in Hartford, Connecticut. The grips on the gun are present with a dark tone to the 1-piece walnut. There is some wood fill on one side. This is a very attractive original Civil War .31 caliber Colt revolver that displays well and doesn't cost a fortune.
