Manufactured in 1861, the first year of production. The Model 1862 was the last of the Colt percussion revolvers. The top of the barrel is marked "ADDRESS COL SAML COLT NEW - YORK U.S. AMERICA", "COLTS/PATENT" on the left side of the frame and "36 CAL" on the left trigger guard shoulder. The matching serial number is marked on the barrel, frame, trigger guard, back strap, wedge (386), cylinder (386), and arbor pin. The loading lever is un-numbered. Stagecoach holdup scene roll engraved on the rebated cylinder. Blue barrel and cylinder, casehardened loading lever, frame and hammer and silver plated brass trigger guard and back strap. Fitted with smooth one-piece varnished walnut grips. Colt manufactured approximately 19,000 of these revolvers and many were used for metallic conversion making them scarce today in original configuration.
BBL: 5 1/2 inch octagon
Gauge: 36 percussion
Serial Number: 1386
Condition: Very good. The barrel retains 20% original blue finish, mainly concentrated on the protected lower flats. The cylinder has a gray patina with a small amount of flash pitting on the front edge, a few minor dings and most of the scene visible. The loading lever and frame have a smooth mottled brown patina. The trigger guard and back strap have a mellow aged patina with strong traces of the original silver plating in the protected areas of the bow. The revarnished grip is good with a small chip on the right toe, some lower edge wear and a few minor dents and scratches. The markings are clear. There is some forward and backward play in the cylinder, otherwise the action is fine.
