    Largest selection of genuine antique weapons for sale in UK. See our website andrewbottomley.com. Ref 1544. A good American Civil war era Colt's patent 6 shot 1849 pocket model .31 Calibre Percussion revolver. Circa 1855 (serial number verifies the year of manufacture). The 4 inch barrel engraved on top "Address SamL Colt New-York city". All matching serial numbers including the wedge and rammer. The side of frame marked "Colt's Patent". The engraved cylinder stagecoach scene is clearly visible. Overall length is approx 9.5 inches. In good condition with some of the original blueing. Action in working order. One legend has it that the pocket models were popular with Civil War officers who did not rely on them as combat arms but as defense against battlefield surgeons who were bent on amputating a limb. Richard Francis Burton an English explorer, warrior and spy (he spoke 29 languages) was a devotee of Colt revolvers and carried a selection of them on his Middle Eastern and African journeys including his trip to Somalia and Ethiopia in 1855. A pocket model receives prominent mention in his diaries: "My revolvers excited abundant attention, though none would be persuaded to touch them. The pocket pistol became the Malunah or Accursed, and the distance to which it carried ball made every man wonder". Good condition with some original finish. Ref 1544. This is an obsolete antique pistol and is sold as a collectors item only. No Licence is required in the United Kingdom.
