Manufactured in 1849, this was one of approximately 7,000 made in both civilian and military models. Matching numbers can be found on frame, trigger guard and backstrap. The only number readable on the barrel is the number "5". Loading lever is stamped "400". "4356" is visible on the side of the cylinder. Has the typical oval cylinder stops and all original nipples, most with some degree of damage. Cylinder scene is not visible. The original barrel address is partially visible. There is an inspector stamp on the right barrel flat that is visible but not readable. No visible inspector marks on the cylinder. Left side of frame you can read "Colts", part of patent, and visible "U.S.". Has the distinctive trigger guard made of brass with inspector mark "B". Top of back strap has an inspector mark, visible but not readable. Grips have been reshaped at base. Barrel, cylinder and frame are basically a spotted grey brown patina. Hammer shows heavy pitting. Wedge is not numbered. Most of the existing screws show some degree of abuse. Given that these early Martially marked revolvers saw heavy use over a number of years and they are seldom found with any condition. This is a good representative example from this early period. Revolver indexes and locks up correctly. Visible riffling with usual abrasions.
