Fine Early 4-Screw Martial Colt Model 1860 Revolver. Serial number 8946. Caliber 44. This revolver was made in 1861 at beginning of Civil War with well discerned inspectors cartouche on left grip and small sub-inspector initials found on most other metal parts. This is a fine survivor showing light use, retaining much original finish and fine aesthetics.

Very good to fine overall condition. Gun appears all original and matching. Barrel retains about 20% bright blue with balance plum/grey. Cylinder still has blue in chambers and strong traces in protected rebated area and stops. Cylinder scene is crisp and 90% visible. Frame and hammer retain much of their original case colors. Backstrap retains about 20% bright blue. Metal overall has some staining and pitting, but presents nicely with well fit grips with edge wear and chipping on left side as can be seen in photos. Mechanically crisp with crisp bore.
