#4840 Colt 1861 Navy, manufactured as a conversion to a cartridge model in the early 1870s. This is the type serial numbered in its own serial range (1XXX in this case) and appears to have originally built as a 38RF and then blacksmith converted to the much more usable 38CENTER fire at some point in its life. Fine action and very good bore, so after a thorough blessing by a competent gunsmith, this could be a great shooter. It can chamber almost all the 38CF rounds, 38COLT, 38S&W, 38-Special …and so when loaded with a mild load of black powder and using a wad-cutter type bullet (in the 38Special casing), this would make a very, VERY inexpensive shooter. The exterior has liberal strong traces of dense crystal blue in the protected areas, a strong cylinder scene about 80-90% intact and 85-90% varnish on the grips. It could use some light oil and bronze wool scraping of the barrel surface to remove a build-up of a crusty patina in that area. About Fine as described. $2650.
