ORIGINAL, MATCHING NUMBERS, 1863 American Civil War, Colt Model 1860 Army .44 Calibre Percussion Revolver With Very Good Naval Battle Cylinder Scene. Sn 12811 - 12811The Colt Model 1860 Army was a muzzle-loading cap & ball .44-calibre revolver used during the American Civil War. It was used as a side arm by Cavalry, Infantry, Artillery troops, and Naval forces. This Colt Model 1860 Army revolver is in nice original condition with even patina throughout. The pistol has an 8 " steel barrel and measures 14" overall. The weapon has the correct blade foresight and 'notched hammer' rear sight. The heel of the steel butt strap is also correctly notched for addition of a detachable shoulder stock and it has a captive 'lever' ramrod (see page 131 of Colt Firearms by James Serven). The barrel is crisply stamped with manufacturer detail 'Address Col. Saml Colt New York U.S. America'. The left side of the frame is stamped 'Colt's Patent' and the cylinder correctly stamped Colt’s Patent ‘Pat Sept 10th 1850’. The cylinder retains its faint Naval battle scene (honouring the Victory of the Texas Navy over The Mexican Navy 16th may 1843). The pistol has matching serial numbers '93707/ 3707' on the barrel block, frame, butt strap, cylinder & brass trigger guard which has an extended tang. The serial number dates it to 1863 (The American Civil War was fought between 1861 & 1865). It has attractive American Walnut grip and the pistol's single action firing action works perfectly. Price for this historic revolver includes UK delivery. NB As an obsolete calibre percussion revolver no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display.
