LSB#: 170418RR97

Make: Williamsburg Firearms Manufactory for the U. S. Historical Society

Model: William F. Cody (Buffalo Bill) Commemorative Colt 1860 Army

Serial Number: 1549

Year of Manufacture: Modern

Caliber: .44 Caliber Cap and Ball

Action Type: Single Action Percussion Revolver

Markings: The underside of the frame is marked with a “Crown / W” Williamsburg proof mark and “1549”. The underside of the barrel is marked “FOR BLACK POWDER ONLY”. The sides of the barrel are engraved and gold plated with “WILLAM F. CODY” and decorative western scenes and scrollwork. The cylinder and frame are also engraved and gold plated with decorative western scenes. Please see our pictures for a complete description and to get an idea of the artwork and detail.

Barrel Length: 8”

Sights / Optics: The front sight is a gold-plated blade fixed to the barrel. The rear sight is a “V” notch in the top edge of the hammer.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The grip is a one-piece cream colored plastic simulated ivory. There is a small chip out of the bottom front left inside corner and a few light handling marks. The grips are slightly proud of the metal at the top of the front strap. The grips rate in about Very Good to Fine overall condition.

Type of Finish: The finish is blued with gold plated engraving and a gold plated backstrap. The trigger guard is brass. Gold is typically plated over a plating of nickel or silver, and in this case the plating appears to be nickel, which is exposed where the gold has worn off.

Finish Originality: All Original

Bore Condition: The bore is bright with sharp, pronounced rifling. There is no erosion in the bore.

Overall Condition: This handgun retains about 83% of its metal finish. There are several small dings and scratches scattered over the barrel. The cylinder shows surface loss in the gold plating with nickel exposed, and there is thinning in the backstrap with nickel exposed on its underside front face. There are tool marks on both sides of the barrel wedge, a few tiny tool marks in the right side of the barrel below the wedge, and a ding/scuff mark on the right side below the wedge near the bottom of the barrel. There is a cluster of tiny dings in the left side of the barrel marks in the right side of the barrel below the wedge. There is a tiny ding on the left recoil shield and a small spot of light pinprick surface erosion in the flat at the bottom of the shield. There are a few tiny marks in the bottom of the trigger guard and a shallow bruise and swirl marks in the front strap. The screw heads are sharp except for the 3 screws in the underside of the trigger guard, which are distressed. The markings are clear. Overall, this handgun rates in about Good condition, and would be in at least Very Good condition if the loading lever were present.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly, with a small amount of play in the cylinder lockup. The trigger pull is crisp. This revolver is missing its loading lever, plunger, latch pin and spring. 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: None

Our Assessment: This is a William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody commemorative Colt 1860 Army revolver from the U.S. Historical Society. From Wikipedia: “The Colt .44-caliber “Army" Model was the most widely used revolver of the Civil War. It had a six-shot, rotating cylinder, and fired a 0.454-inch-diameter round lead ball, or a conical projectile, that was propelled by a 30-grain charge of black powder ignited by a copper percussion cap that contained a volatile charge of fulminate of mercury. The percussion cap, when struck by the hammer, ignited the powder charge. When fired, balls had a muzzle velocity of about 900 feet per second.” This is a beautiful revolver with gold plated engraving on the cylinder, the sides of the frame and barrel, and gold plating on the backstrap, with a faux ivory grip. Please see out pictures for more detail than we can put in words. Unfortunately, the revolver is missing is loading lever, plunger, latch pin and spring, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the spare Uberti parts available from www.vtigunparts.com or other sources were an exact fit. This revolver is in about Good overall condition with about 83% of its metal finish remaining. The bore is bright with sharp pronounced rifling and no erosion. This revolver has a great look and a nice action. Even without the loading lever, it will be a wonderful collector’s piece to display at your home or office. If you should decide to shoot it, you are sure to get some favorable comments from your friends and fellow shooters.
