Colt Civilian Model 1860 Army Percussion Revolver. Caliber .44 percussion, 8" round barrel, blue, casehardened, and silver finish, walnut grips. Manufactured in 1868. The revolver has the one-line New York address on top of the barrel, the standard naval battle scene on the cylinder, "COLTS-PATENT" on the left side of the frame, "44 CAL", on the left trigger guard shoulder and a one piece grip. Matching numbers are found on the frame, barrel, trigger guard, backstrap and arbor pin. The wedge is unnumbered. Though metallic cartridges became more widely available after the Civil War, percussion revolvers remained popular even after the Colt Single Action Army was introduced. CONDITION: Fine. The revolver retains 30% plus original blue finish (strongest on the barrel) with strong patterns of original case colors, mostly visible in the protected areas, otherwise a smooth brown patina. Nearly all of the cylinder scene remains. The trigger guard retains traces of aged darkened original silver in the protected areas. The grips are very fine with a scratch (left side) and some minor pressure dents and scratches. Most of the original varnish remains. Mechanically excellent. Strong rifling with minor abrasion.
