    **ALL MATCHING NUMBERS INCLUDING CYLINDER**American Civil War 1863, Colt New York Model 1860 Army .44 Calibre Cap & Ball Percussion Revolver. Sn 18279:18 - 18279:18

    The 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 very good condition. The metal work has even patina. The pistol has an 8 " round steel barrel and measures 14" overall. The bore has just light staining consistent with age & use and has crisp rifling. The weapon has the correct brass 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. The barrel is stamped with manufacturer detail 'Address Col. Saml Colt New York U.S. America'. The pistol has matching serial numbers '140341’ on the barrel block, frame, brass grip frame and butt. The cylinder has Colt’s 1850 Patent, matching serial number ‘0341’ and typical faint Naval scene. The serial number dates the pistol’s production to 1863. The frame has ‘A’ and ‘D’ factory inspector’s marks. It has its original walnut grip. The edges of the butt has some nibbles consistent with holster wear and the initial ‘E’ has been period hand carved into the butt, most likely the name of the original period owner. The pistol's single action firing mechanism works as it should. The price 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. Sn 18279:18
