Extraordinary Cased Engraved Colt Paterson No.2 Belt Model Percussion Revolver U.S.A, 19th century.

COLT MODEL 1851 REVOLVER: While most of the standard production run of the “Navy” Colt model came out of the Hartford factory with a 7.5 inch barrel, this c.1853-made engraved example with ivory grip panels is quite a bit shorter, coming in at just 4 inches. Custom presentation examples like this truncated Colt are extremely rare, but the small sideways “2” following the cylinder number may indicate that this revolver was one of a pair.

.45 COLT REVOLVER: To mark Colt’s 175th anniversary, an exemplary .45 Colt revolver was commissioned in the Colt Custom Shop and this elaborately engraved and gold embellished single action is the result. A golden Colt factory dome and inlaid gold lines accent an incredible carbona blued finish, further set off by scrimshaw and ivory grip panels.

COLT'S SIDEHAMMER POCKET REVOLVER: Although actually designed by Sam Colt himself, the M1855/Root was unusual in that it was the only percussion Colt handgun built with a solid frame and a wrap-around one-piece grip. Offered in both .28 and .31 percussion caliber variations, this sidehammer Colt continued in production through the American Civil War until 1870, even if only around 45,000 examples were to be manufactured.

The Heavy Holy Grail of Colt Revolvers- The rare Colt Walker Model 1847 is a 6-shot, single-action revolver weighing in at 4-1/2 lb & measuring a 1-1/2' in length. It was the weighty brainchild of Samuel Colt & Samuel Walker. Walker met with Colt in the 1840s to propose improvements to the Colt Paterson revolver...the result was the Colt Walker. Fewer than 10% of the 1,100 are known to exist today. Due to their rarity, these guns are the Holy Grail of Colt revolver collecting. NRA Museums.
