Description

This one has been a source of confusion to collectors over the years: often called "Model 1862 Pocket Navy" or "Model 1853 Pocket", it is really a cross between the 1849 Pocket and the 1860 Army. The rebated cylinder of the "Army", and the frame and shape of the "Pocket". It was only made for a few years - mostly 1861 to 1863, with cartridge conversions still on the market in the early 1870's. As with all the late-model percussion revolvers, the cap-and-ball configuration is more desirable among collectors. This is a very late percussion model from 1863, just as they started to convert them to cartridge use. It is in very good condition, with sharp markings and all matching numbers. The cylinder scene is very good, the action is crisp and accurate, with proper lock-up and indexing. The one-piece walnut grip shows about 70% original varnish, without damage and the usual handling marks. There are a few spots of original blue in protected areas. The bore is very good and shiny, with sharp rifling and minor spotting throughout. The nipples are clean, complete and undamaged, and show very little corrosion. 5 1/2 inch barrel, SN 19031, rated very good to fine overall.
