Civil War Colt Model 1849 // The "Gun That Won The West"
Antique Colt Model 1849 Percussion Pocket Revolver, manufactured in 1860, during the heat of the Civil War. With a scarce 5-inch barrel, in good condition for its age, and with its original wood grips showing extensive holster scratches. Signs of wear and use overall, including some pitting and various scuffs and dents, typical for a pistol of this age. The barrel has the two line Hartford address “ADDRESS SAM’L COLT HARTFORD CT”. The cylinder is worn but still shows decent remnants of a stagecoach robbing scene that was once engraved on it, along with “COLTS PATENT” and serial number. Missing parts include the original ramrod and furniture. It cycles properly, however this is an antique and not warranted safe to shoot and it should not be attempted without the aid of an expert. An excellent addition to any collection!
The Colt model 1849 is known as the Gun that Won the West as it was the preferred sidearm of cowboys, outlaws and lawmen alike during the Gold Rush and Westward Expansion.
