Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Colt Model 1849 M1849 Pocket, Civil War-Era, Blue & Silver Plated 6” -- SA Revolver, Display Case & More, MFD 1863 Antique

LSB#: 161129LV78

Make: Colt

Model: 1849 Pocket

Serial Number: 245264

Year of Manufacture: 1863 (Proofhouse.com)

Caliber: .31 Caliber Ball

Action Type: 6-Shot, Single Action Percussion Revolver

Markings: The top of the barrel is marked “ADDRESS COL. SAML (small “L”) COLT NEW-YORK U.S. AMERICA” All serialized parts are correct for frame number 245264 except for that of the cylinder, which is marked "4484". The cylinder scene is heavily faded from refinishing, though some elements are still discernible. The left of the frame is marked "COLT'S / PATENT", the left of the trigger guard plate is marked "31 CAL", the left of the trigger guard bow is marked "4".

Barrel Length: 4”, Octagonal

Sights / Optics: The front sight is a brass bead, screwed into the barrel. The rear sight is a “V” notch in the hammer.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The grips are a one piece walnut stock, which was sanded at some point, now with a rubbed oil finish. There are some gaps in flush fit to the grip straps, the wood still has nice tone and grain lines, there are scattered compression marks, but no major damages. The grips are in about Very Good overall condition as refinished.

Type of Finish: Blue, with Case Colored Hammer & Silver Plated Brass Frame

Finish Originality: The barrel assembly and cylinder have been refinished. The other components appear to have their original finish.

Bore Condition: The bore is dark, the rifling is still highly defined but is interrupted frequently with moderate erosion growth and pitting.

Overall Condition: The blue items show heavy erosion on some surfaces under the finish. There is loss of the cylinder scene marking, the bolt cutouts have rounding. The nipples are probably replacements but have some patina, indicating some age. The case colored hammer and frame have mottled gray patina and light erosion, some spots of coloring are still faintly observed. The brass grip frame and trigger guard have dark orange patina, with a few areas hinting at cleaning a while ago. The metal to metal fit has a few tiny gaps but overall, this is a very attractive revolver. The screw heads are moderately distressed but still serviceable. The markings are clear unless otherwise noted. Overall, this handgun rates in about Very Good condition as having restored parts.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly, though there are some rough parts when cocking the hammer back. The hammer has a strong mainspring, the cylinder produces mild full lockup in all 6 chambers. We did not fire this handgun. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: Included is a beautiful vintage wooden display case with an instructional procedure glued to the inside of the lid; this paperwork has what appears to be light pencil marks, we believe it is the original label for the box and the wood is definitely old. The exterior has nice natural texturing to the grain, which has a really neat wavy pattern. There are old dark gouges on the exterior, a few small chip losses are observed, there are no major damages outside of a missing sliver of wood on the underside, seen where areas of the green felt are rubbed off. The interior has several small compartments that are green felt lined; there is oil staining and rubbing, but no major damages. The box is in Fine condition for its age, the included key even locks properly. A two cavity .31 caliber bullet mold, made of brass, is included, along with a brass powder flask; the flask has 13 stars, is embossed with an American eagle holding an olive branch and spears, atop two crossed revolvers, over "E. PLURIBUS UNUM" in banner. These items have dark patina, they are very old but still function well. An old UMC percussion tin, showing heavy aging, two Italian Alcan Co. percussion cap tins are provided, showing minimal wear. A total of 7 .31 caliber lead balls are provided, with white powdered corrosion. Please see our pictures.

Our Assessment: From R.L. Wilson’s ‘The Book of Colt Firearms’, page 107 “This rather diminutive revolver, a smaller brother to the 36 caliber Model 1851 Navy, met with the largest sales unit volume in all of Colt’s percussion line. Indeed, no other percussion revolver made in America could match “The 1849” production record. Made from 1850 through 1873, the total manufactured was in excess of 325,000 in America, plus approximately 11,000 in London…Popular as a defense weapon, many thousands were sold in Western America to pioneer families. Soldiers appreciated the compact little pistols, and photographs of Civil War troops frequently show a sprinkling of the Model 1849 tucked into belts or in holsters.” This 1849 was made in 1863, when America was deep in its Civil War, still the most deadly U.S. conflict, with WWII in second place by 212,823 souls; pistols from this era are always collectible, this one comes with a host of accouterments, the frame and grip straps have beautiful aging, the blue components, though restored, really light this vintage pistol up well. Though no documentation is to be had on where this revolver started its life, it is anyone's guess as to how it ended up in California in 2017. Please see our pictures and good luck.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This antique handgun can be sold in California.
