A fine example of a Colt 1860 Model Army Percussion Revolver. Manufactured in 1862 during the U.S. Civil War, it was one of the primary Revolvers used by the Federal forces. This revolver has about 30% original blue finish to the barrel, mainly in protected areas. The case hardening on the frame is evident but almost silvered out. Both the action and bore are very good. All markings are clear and all numbers match. The grips are good with very slight shrinkage and a small chip out of one toe. The right hand grip has an Inspectors Cartouche denoting U.S. Government ownership and issue.
