This is a Model 1860 Colt Army cap and ball revolver. The serial number 47884 puts this one in the production year of 1862. The 8" barrel has very good rifling and a clean bore. The single line ADDRESS COL. SAMl COLT NEW YORK U.S. AMERICA address is no longer visible. The Colt patent mark is still visible on the frame. The cylinder scene is all gone, to include the serial number. The sub inspectors stamp of the letter H is stamped on the trigger guard. The serial numbers are legible and match, with the exception of the replacement wedge. The gun has a mixed steel gray and brown patina. The mechanics of this old Colt work perfectly. The grips have lost all of the original varnish, but the walnut has a nice aged look to it. The usual small bumps and dings can be seen on the sides of the grips. They fit the gun like a glove, and have no repairs. This is a solid gun that has some great eye appeal. It may be a little tired, but still functions, displays well and will make a nice addition to your Civil War Cavalry or Colt pistol collection.
