Description:
American 19th Century Brevette Colt Walker Model Single Action Percussion Revolver. NVSN, .44 caliber, 9-inch unmarked part-round, part-octagonal barrel, the right side of lug marked: US/1847 above wedge screw.. Case-hardened lever. Heavily roll-stamped cylinder with Indian and Ranger scene with two panels reading: MODEL U.S.M.R. above and PATENT N? below. This is incorrect on a legitimate Colt Walker which would be marked in this location: COLT'S PATENT. Elongated cylinder stops [these appear longer than those on original revolvers], Case-hardened figural hammer, the top with fishscales and the sides with floral scrolls and animal "eyes". Hammer a possible replacement. Marred and incorrect screws. The top of backstrap engraved with an image of a Rocky Mountain sheep and backstrap engraved with a script P and H ????. the latter portion of name, if there was one, appears worn away. Brass squareback triggerguard in the style of an original Walker. "V" form hammer spring plug on inside of front gripstrap. One-piece walnut grips. This revolver could benefit from an xray examination as it would possibly reveal markings that have been removed, or in any case, the lack of them. Condition: Good for this model. The metal appears mechanically cleaned at one time, showing a mottled grey patina with scattered light pitting and marks present. Wood with wear and minor marks. Mechanically sound.
