Please click the image for a larger version
Colt M1849 pocket model 4" barrel revolver. Serial number 280800 matching on barrel, frame, triggerguard, butt, cylinder, and wedge; lever is not numbered. Metal parts show fine cylinder scene and strong traces of original case color and original blue, mixing with attractive light to medium patina. Some dings/scratches are present on the barrel from wedge removal, and a couple of the screws show screwdriver marks. Wood grips have especially attractive grain, particularly on the right side, showing most of the original varnish overall, worn only on the high points, with some minor handling marks, and a couple little nicks on the butt edge. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
