    Description

    Colt Model 1849 Pocket Revolver. This .31 caliber revolver, serial number 228625, features a 5 shot cylinder, 4" octagon barrel, and loading levers. One is plugged, and all are made of iron. The trigger guard, back strap, and front sight are brass. The loading lever catch is also brass and is not standard on this model.

    The full serial number appears on the barrel lug, bottom of frame, trigger guard flat, and butt strap. The number "8625" appears on the bottom of the wedge and on the circumference of the cylinder.

    The barrel flat is marked "Address Col. Samuel Colt New York U.S. America". Cylinder is further marked "Colt's Patent" in faint, but readable, script. The cylinder scene is present but faint.

    Condition: Mechanically sound, in good plus condition. All iron parts have a dark even patina with little pitting. Brass parts have an even patina exhibiting evidence of cleaning. The walnut grip is generally free of dings and scratches and retains 80% of the original varnish.
