1868 Wild West COLT Model 1860 “Commerical” .44 Caliber Percussion REVOLVER Late, Iconic Percussion Colt!
1868 Wild West COLT Model 1860 “Commerical” .44 Caliber Percussion REVOLVER
Late, Iconic Percussion Colt!
Here we present an antique Colt Model 1860 Army Percussion Revolver, made in 1868 in Hartford, Connecticut. The 1860 Army was the single most used pistol of the American Civil War. Over 200,000 were made from 1860 to 1873, and 156,000 of those were made by the end of the war in 1865. These were excellent sidearms for officers, cavalry, infantry, and artillery troops. The 1860 Army was Samuel Colt’s finest achievement to that point, having finally developed a large caliber revolver that weighed about 2 lbs. 10 oz. to the famous Dragoon’s 4 lbs. 4 oz., and was adopted en masse by the U.S. government with huge contracts.
The 1860 Army went on to serve the U.S. military even after the Civil War and into the Indian Wars, until production of Colt’s 1873 Single Action Army created new waves in the revolver market, and again achieved great success in the military and commercial markets.
This is the commercial variant not intended for government or military contracts. It lacks provision for the detachable shoulder stock in the recoil shield and the bottom of the grip frame. There are no inspector markings either.
The overall condition is very good. Strong action all the way around. The cylinder scene is still somewhat visible. The bore is clean is in good condition with strong rifling. Both grips are firm. Numbers match. The barrel wedge is a replacement. A good example of a late Colt 1860 Army!
