1879 LONDON PROOFED Antique Nickel COLT NEW LINE .32 Caliber CF Revolver
Potent Conceal & Carry Hideout Gun
Here we present an antique Colt New Line .32 Revolver, made in 1879 in Hartford, Connecticut. A single action revolver, this small pocket revolver was one of a number of inexpensive handguns produced by Colt from 1873 to 1884. The “New Line” was Colt’s first production model handgun chambered for .32 caliber. This revolver utilized a .32 centerfire cartridge matched to a 5-shot fluted cylinder fitted to a 2 ¼” long round barrel.
About 22,000 were produced in this .32 caliber and was produced for the full duration of the production run. This revolver was designed to be a small but potent self-defense revolver for stowing in one’s pocket in the 19th Century. Spur Trigger “Suicide Special” manufacture was fierce during this time, and Colt struggled to compete against the countless small shops making very similar, less expensive revolvers, though not necessarily of the same quality. The Colt remained a steady, reliable force in firearms for much longer than the rest.
This revolver features 5 shots of .32 Centerfire, a handsome nickel finish and rosewood grips. The top of the barrel reads “COLT’S PT. F. A. MFG. CO./HARTFORD CT USA”.
The overall condition is fine. Original nickel and fire blue accented finish. The markings are clear. The action is excellent. The bore is in nice shape, reflective, and well-rifled. The rosewood grips show some wear from carry and are solid and smooth generally. A great little revolver from Colt for the British market!
