    A RARE .56 PERCUSSION COLT 1855 MODEL 'BRITISH' FIVE-SHOT REVOLVING CARBINE


    NO. 10240, CIRCA 1856-64

    With blued sighted barrel rifled with six grooves, part octagonal breech with dovetailed folding leaf-sights from '100' to '200' yards, blued fluted cylinder stamped 'Col. Colt Hartford Ct. U.S.A.' in the sighting groove and 'Colt's Patent' above the disc-pawl, case-hardened side-hammer and rammer, the latter with sprung catch, brass trigger-guard and steel recurved butt-plate, figured butt, saddle-ring, matching numbers, and virtually all its original case-hardened finish which has worn away to a plum colour, London proof marks
    21in. barrel

    Nearly all examples having sold at auctions have been reblued or refinished, this is in sleepy original condition, Action is perfect and tight, numbers are matching and rather interestingly it has a steel butt plate (matching number) rather than a brass one. The 10240 number falls within the original 2000 the British Government ordered from the Colt Company.

    Due to the value cash upon collection is preferred, I am available for questions please call me, I am also interested in part exchange or swaps for Arms & Armour....Read full description
