Civil War Colt Model 1860 Army Revolver, serial #49494, .44 caliber, 8″ barrel with a very good bore that has some mild freckling within the grooves. This 1862 manufactured revolver has nearly all matching numbers including the cylinder arbor (no numbers are visible on the cylinder or the wedge), with the metal having a mostly plum-brown patina throughout with spots of mild freckling and small impact marks scattered about, as well as some minor pinprick pitting at the front of the cylinder. The brass triggerguard has a mixed yellow and brown-ochre patina with some brighter yellow on the exposed edges. The walnut grips are in good shape but exhibit moderate wear with numerous handling marks and blemishes throughout and only traces of the inspector cartouches still visible. Additionally, there are five large notches carved into the grip on the left side and two notches on the right. The lock-up is still tight and the mechanism is fully functional with a bit of over-travel to the cylinder if the hammer is cocked rapidly. This is a great-looking 1860 Army (with palindromic serial number) and is in very good overall condition.

As an antique gun, this will transfer without any restrictions.
