This Colt 1849 Pocket Sets the Standard!

With the 1849 Pocket serving as Colt’s most produced revolver of the 19th century, this example stands as one of the very best.

The factory rosewood cased set comes with two incredibly rare matching barrels (4-inch and 6-inch). Not just smothered in factory engraving, it’s the distinct and wonderfully executed early style, featuring several wildlife vignettes. It is a historic presentation, given to Henry Beach who provided the steam engines for Colt’s Armory in Hartford.

Best of all it is in spectacular condition. As near mint as one could ever hope to find, it is awash in high polish factory blueing, plentiful original silver plating, supremely crisp markings and cylinder scene, deluxe walnut grips, beautiful case hardening, and high condition accessories.

It is a collection defining piece that can simultaneously add beauty, history, and rarity.
