Offered at $2,550
169. Colt's Model of 1860 Army Revolver, ..44 caliber, 8 inch barrel with correct gain-twist rifling which is very very strong. Three screw model cut for a shoulder stock. 'D' martial inspector marks on the barrel, backstrap and cylinder. Very good full fitting walnut grips with just traces of the cartouche border visible. All numbers match in the 132,XXX SN range- made in 1863. Perhaps 10% of the cylinder scene is visible. Overall condition is very good with metal coloration turned to a thin plum brown gray patina. Nice barrel address, the 'PAT' in ' Colt's Patent' is weak. Nice nipples, traces of safety pins only. Some muzzle wear from holster on right side. All in all a very decent example of a martially marked Army. Antique
