It is a sling swivel, meant to work in conjunction with the sling swivel on the butt stock when the two were attached.
A revolver of this type (in fact this maybe a copy of that same revolver) was presented to US Secretary of War Jefferson Davis during the  mid 1850's. One of those promotional things Colt likes to do.

Ahh, cool.  If I had seen a different angle on it and saw that it was elongated, I might have figured that out.  Thanks!

The pictured gun is an 1851 Navy (6 shot .36).  You may have an 1849 model, they look very similar, just smaller.  Colt pocket models are described here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colt_Pocket_Percussion_Revolvers

What I'm wondering, what is that gizmo in front of the trigger guard?  A lanyard/saddle-ring of sorts?

Looks like you're correct....mine is the Pietta version of this Colt.



This ones mine....

It's a Jeff Davis Commemorative Cased Set Limited edition 31 of 1861 made by Euroarms for Beauvoir the Jefferson Davis Home & Presidential library in Biloxi, MS.  It has Silver plated BS/TG, stock hardware and butt plate The pistol and stock furniture are engraved similar to the Colt presentation piece.

Got a new horse in the stable. Found this at a local gun show. Replica Arms 1847 Walker, it even came with a brass mold for 200 gn "Walker" conical's. Shown with my "real" Colts; 1860 Army(1867) and 1849 Pocket(1863)  for size comparison..
That is one d__n big gun!

Some mighty fine firearms all around.  I really like the 1851 Colt Navy for balance and handling, so much so that I have two, one in the original .36 caliber and the second in .44.  The second one came to me as an unassembled "Basket Case"  that required refinishing since it had been stripped.  They both shoot well and regularly.



A couple of years ago Cabela's had a sale right around Christmas and I picked up a 5 and a 1/2 inch barreled Remington 1858.  It has proven to be very handy and quite accurate.



I also have a more modern iteration of a rifle/shotgun combination from Thompson Center, their "New Englander" in .54 cal./12 Gauge.  Another accurate one that I rather enjoy on the firing line.



I have the purchase of a replica 1860 Colt Army revolver under way at the moment, but it hasn't arrived as yet.

Oh yeah, I also have a Ducksfoot.  It is a kit that I picked up from Las Vegas's sole Black Powder gun shop, Ray's Beaver Bag, which is no longer around.  The novelty of having a three barreled pistol that lets go of all three at one time was just too strong for me to resist.

Two new Uberti 1860 R-M Conversions, for CAS practice sessions. Much easier to get a lot of shooting in vs using my C&B 1860's. Same weight and feel, just faster to load and still using the Holy Black.  I'll probably also use them as loaners, to introduce new people to CAS. I'm currently setting up the necessary spare leather for that. Cheers!

I bring out the 1st gen Colts once or twice a year.  They shot a clean match Saturday with the Darby Rough Regulators out at Bunk Stagner's place.  Goex FFFg in the 4 3/4" .32-20 (1915) and FFg in the TTN.  Olde Eynsford FFg in the 7 1/2" .45 Colt (1901) and the 44wcf carbine.  I wrote a more detailed story of these pistols in the Colt forum here: http://www.cascity.com/forumhall/index.php/topic,59850.0.html
