Manufactured 1838 through 1841. Full octagon barrel has star and snake address "PATENT ARMS Mg. Co. PATERSON NJ. COLT'S Pt.". Eight shot cylinder with ring pattern cocking system. American walnut stock with cheek rest and crescent buttplate. Approximately 500 Second Model revolving rifles where produced. Several improvements where introduced during the production of the Second Model; the primary one being the change from a square back cylinder to a rounded back cylinder, to reduce the risk of spent caps from binding the rotation of the cylinder. The next significant change was the creation of the capper cut-out on the right side of the recoil shield as the First Models. The Paterson Second Model ring trigger was also purchased in a limited quantity by the Republic of Texas. These iconic firearms where the start of it all when it comes to the American small arms progression and ingenuity. Very good overall. Metal surfaces have attained a mellow patina with a mixture bright steel. Bore and mechanics are very good and in proper functioning order. Sights are of a more contemporary replacement but look good and appropriate. Walnut stock is very solid with no cracks or material loss but are very slightly undersized at butt plate. Serial No. 401 has been observed on rear of cylinder, breech of barrel and both wedges. Rear wedge appears to be a replacement. No further disassembly was done. This is a wonderful fresh to market Paterson revolving rifle and will surely be a great addition to a well balanced collection.
