    Colt Model 1860 Army .44 caliber, six shot cylinder, serial number 19324. The Model 1860 was the ultimate result of Colt's efforts to lighten the four plus pound Dragoon to make it more acceptable for military use. This is a fairly early pistol, probably made in mid to late 1861 as the Civil War was just starting and demand for all sorts of arms was insatiable. This revolver is configured to accept a shoulder stock with a round barrel of 8 inches in length and the top single line marked, "ADDRESS COL. SAML COLT NEW - YORK U.S. AMERICA." The serial number is marked on the iron backstrap toe, the front of the brass trigger guard, the frame and on the bottom of the barrel lug. The patent information is legible on the rebated cylinder, but the serial number is not. Other markings include "COLTS / PATENT" on the frame and "T" on the trigger guard behind the loop. Mechanically good to very good, the metal has turned a mottled brownish gray patina with the brass trigger guard a nice lemon yellow with some dents noted for accuracy. The walnut stocks exhibit expected wear with some scrapes and dings.
