Fingers, ya got took! That t'ain't a second gen Colt. Best to send it on to me and I'll hide it for ya'. Really a beautiful find, we should all be so lucky. Do you plan on trying to shoot it or is it just for lookin'?

Mailman dropped off this 1863 vintage, 6 shot, 4 inch barrel 1849 Pocket Model yesterday.  It's nothing special, just your everyday
pocket model that got the benefit of cased accessories.  It has some bluing showing, along with faded case colors.   It locks up with no over rotation, and has no cylinder turn line. The case is by Bill's Cases, Flask was a modern reproduction, as is the cap tin.  Nipple wrench is 2nd Gen and the mold is a well used original - I think.  I've already swapped the Flask and mold with what I believe are originals.  I need to get my Percussion Accoutrements book out and do some research so I can validate the accessory's pedigree.

Please excuse my belated response.  Not only is it not a 2nd, Gen, it will be (was ) shot.  I was tempted to shoot it in a match; but decide against it.  The 20 or so rounds I did put down range grouped fairly well at 15 yards.  The pistol functioned flawlessly.

A shooting buddy has a Walker repro and I have an 1860 vintage 4" pocket. Sometimes at regional N-SSA skirmishes we shoot those side by side on the line. It's a hoot, and we even get hits at 25 yards once in a while.

Gonna have to start down this scary, smoky trail as I just picked up an 1875 marked Springfield Trapdoor. Got all the stuff to load up the Holy Black except the powder and cast boolits.
