    Largest selection of genuine antique weapons for sale in UK. See our website andrewbottomley.com. Ref 2970. A very scarce Cased Colt model 1849 London pocket percussion revolver. Circa 1853-1857. The six inch barrel marked {ADDRESS. COL. COLT LONDON} and stamped with London proof marks. All firearms were required by the British Government to be proof fired and stamped on alternate chambers of the cylinder with Crown over GP and Crown over V. Also the barrel was proof marked on the left side of the barrel, both proof stamps on top of each other. Later London Pockets were sold into the American market being made up from parts that were shipped back to Hartford after the London factory closed in 1857. Many of these will not be British proofed. It is estimated that about 11000 where manufactured in London and around three thousand of the production were cased. The stage coach cylinder scene is clearly visible. All matching serial numbers. Complete in its correct London box (12 X 6 inches) with a brass escutcheon to the lid and its original blue baize lining. The inside of the case lid has the original Colt paper label with its loading and cleaning instructions. Case contains cleaning rod, L-shaped nipple wrench, James Dixon & Sons Sheffield bag shaped flask, Colt patent bullet mold and a London cap tin. Nice crisp action. The revolver is in very good condition overall retaining most of it's original blued finish. Ref 2970. This is an obsolete antique item and is sold as a collectors item only. No Licence is required in the United Kingdom. If you wish to purchase this item please visit our website andrewbottomley.com where you can pay by credit/debit card.
