The Colt 1849 pocket and 1851 Navy models are perhaps the most successful percussion revolvers Colt ever produced. The introduction of the 1849 in 1850 came on the heels of the "Baby Dragoon", at the time one of the most popular Colts. Everyone suspected the new 1849 pocket would never be able to live up to the previous model's popularity however 23 years of steady production, and some 340,000 specimens later, the M1849 pocket would become the single most produced Colt percussion revolver ever. There are at least 200 known variations of the 1849, and a collector could spend a lifetime trying to assemble them all... This specimen, with serial number 205171 was manufactured in 1862. It is in very good condition, with small amounts of blue still visible in protected areas around the frame and under the rammer. The markings and lettering are sharp, and there is a very small amount of surface erosion near the muzzle. The roll-engraved cylinder scene is one of the best I have ever seen. The one-piece walnut grip is excellent, with a good wood-to-metal fit and very minor handling marks. The brass grip strap retains about 70% of the original silver plating. The action is crisp and tight, with strong springs, excellent lock-up and indexing. The bore of the 4 inch barrel is good, with decent rifling and some moderate pitting. Matching serial numbers on all parts, except the wedge which is not numbered. Hartford address, good, undamaged nipples. SN 205171, rated very good overall.
