Mechanism : Percussion Revolver

Description: A good .31” Colt model 1849 pocket revolver with scarce six shot cylinder. Iron frame engraved COLTS PATENT to the left side with cap loading recess to the flash guard on the right. Brass trigger guard and back strap serial numbered to the pistol and smooth walnut grips with much original varnish finish. Six shot cylinder with roll engraved stage coach hold up scene is serial numbered to the pistol. 4” octagonal progressive twist rifled barrel is roll engraved to the top flat with single line US address ADDRESS COL SAMl COLT NEW-YORK U S AMERICA with brass bead front sight. Rammer to the underside and original wedge numbered to the gun. Developed from the earlier full size .44” military Walker and Dragoon pistols the Colt pocket was the first of the viable self-defence revolvers firing an effective size ball over short ranges. The pockets were genuinely able to be carried in a pocket and were very popular arms at the time with those needing an effective but concealable self defence arm. Most were fitted with five shot cylinders but some like this offered the extra shot in exchange for a larger diameter cylinder. In good condition with very good bore and mechanics, tight lock up with all matching numbers and much blue / grey finish to the metal work. A nice example of the scarcer six shot pocket.
