Description

Production of the 1849 Pocket began in 1850 and continued until 1873, making it the longest run of percussion revolvers in Colt’s history. The 1849 was the successor to the “Baby Dragoon”, until then Colt’s most popular small-caliber revolver. Critics doubted if the 1849 could live up to the baby’s reputation however the colonel proved them all wrong, and the 1849 became his single most successful percussion revolver, with more pieces made than any other. There are some 200 pocket variations known to collectors. This particular example is an early 6 inch barrel version from the 1850’s. It is in very good to fine condition with a lot of silver plating left on the usually worn-through brass grip straps, very fine walnut grips, and matching serial numbers on the frame, grip straps, cylinder and barrel. The barrel has none of the finish remaining, and the “stage coach” scene on the cylinder has worn off. The bore is clean, with very little erosion, and sharp, pronounced rifling. The action is strong and crisp, and the cylinder indexes properly. Rated very good to fine overall.
