    Above average condition for a Colt of this age. Lots of blue and casehardening remains.

    Produced in the London Factory in 1854 this would have been immediately loaded onto a ship and sent off to the Crimea such was the need for guns.

    After the war the guns were returned to the UK and they all underwent an overhaul. The cylinder scenes were normally removed (machined off) as it was on this one which is how we can tell it was a Board of Ordnance example. The rest of the pistol is so crisp it is impossible for all of the scene to have worn off.

    Often parts got mixed up whilst be overhauled and it’s very common for them to have mismatched parts including cylinder however this one is fully matching with the exception of the wedge. The backstrap is unmarked but is original to the pistol.

    They only started applying WD markings in 1856. If they were overhauled prior to this then they could have went back into military service without but more likely any that weren’t subsequently marked were used out of service. Used at home or around the empire on docks, by police, prisons, customs local forces etc etc.

    Nice bright and crisp bore.

    One patch of pitting in cylinder as pictured around the serial number.

    Backstrap unnumbered but clearly always been with it and correct London type with larger milled groove.

    Two piece grips.

    Excellent faultless action. Indexes perfectly.

    Early 6000 range serial number. Early enough to have been able to see some action! Many are so late they may have not even made it to the Crimea.

    Fully legible barrel address.

    Payment via PayPal, bank transfer (BACS) or cash on collection.

    I am happy to consider cheaper guns (Only Deactivated OR Antique) in part exchange if they are valued sensibly (bear in mind my Colt is very fairly priced) but would prefer face to face for this or for me to be in safe receipt of the part ex item before this is sent.
