Description:

The Colt Model 1860 Army Revolver was the main handgun of the Union Army during the Civil War. It provided a .44 caliber revolver in a smaller package than the earlier Walker and Dragoon revolvers. This revolver was manufactured in 1862 on contract for the U.S. Military and has a three-screw frame cut for a shoulder stock, standard markings, matching numbers on the barrel, frame, trigger, back strap, cylinder and arbor pin; small inspection marks, cartouches on the grip, and "HH" lightly carved on the left side of the grip.

Rating Definition:

Very good with 20% original blue on the barrel, traces of original finish in some protected areas, attractive aged patina on the trigger guard, gray and brown patina on the balance, some patches of light pitting, replaced wedge, and mild overall wear. Mechanically fine.
