Product Information

This is a rare Colt 1849 pocket revolver that was converted from percussion to .31 rimfire. The conversion was done as a way of utilizing existing guns to chamber the then new metallic cartridge. This Colt has matching numbers and the correct address, patent and calibre markings. Note the frame still has the hole below the barrel where the loading rod would have fitted when it was original manufactured as a percussion revolver. Rarely seen in the UK a genuine Colt conversion. Chambered in .31 Rimfire (obsolete calibre) this revolver can be owned in its live form without any form of license. It has a full and crisp working action.
This is an obsolete calibre revolver and is sold as a collectors item only
