Antique J.M. COOPER .31 Caliber DOUBLE ACTION POCKET Revolver
CIVIL WAR ERA Early Double Action 1849-like Percussion Revolver
Here we present an antique J.M. Cooper Double Action Pocket Revolver, made circa 1864-69 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. During a time of rapid innovation in firearms technology and an insatiable market due to rapid expansion and the American Civil War, dozens of makers seized their opportunity to put their ideas on the market. The J.M. Cooper Double Action Revolver took the concept of the Colt 1849 Pocket Model and improved it by giving it a double action firing mechanism. In fact, they are so much alike that it is easy to mistake the Cooper for a Colt! Only about 15,000 of these Pocket Models were made during the 1860s, making these quite scarce. Though there are no known military contracts, they made their way onto Civil War battlefields when soldiers purchased them privately for that purpose and they certainly filled holsters in the years following.
The overall condition is very good. The action is strong. The bore is semi-bright. The numbers match. Blue finish and case colors remain visible amidst a gray patina. The walnut grips are in great shape. Here is a great example of a double action alternative to Colts and S&Ws of the period!
