Colt Model 1860 Army Percussion Revolver

.44 caliber, 8" barrel, S/N 129320 (mfg. ca 1863). Blued and color case hardened finish, brass triggerguard, walnut grip. Matching numbers throughout including the wedge and grip. Standard one-line New York barrel address, standard two-line Colt's Patent frame mark, standard cylinder markings with roll engraved naval battle scene. Military sub-inspected throughout with two semi-legible cartouches present on the grip. A much better than average martially marked, mid-war Colt Army Revolver.


Very good. Retains some thinning blue on the barrel and traces of case color on the frame. Markings clear throughout, with cylinder scene mostly visible. Mechanically functional, good bore with light to moderate pitting. Grip with wear, dings and mars that partially obscure the cartouches.

Estimate: $2,000 - $3,500
