Manufactured from 1850 to 1851 with total production around 1,000. Production was halted due to a patent infringement suit won by Colt. "WESSON'S & LEAVITT'S PATENT" marked on the action, patent marking on the rear cylinder face and Mass. Arms address on the top strap. "109" is marked on the front of the frame, underside of the back strap, rear of the frame, and front face of the grip. "199" is marked on the top strap lug.
Very good, retains 30% of original blue and casehardened finishes with the balance primarily a smooth grey patina with some scattered patches of light pitting. The grips are fine with some scattered minor dings throughout, a minor chip absent from the left toe, and some minor hammering marks on the butts. Mechanically excellent.
