Colt Model 1860 Army

.44 caliber. 8" barrel length. SN: 36890. Single-action percussion revolver with fixed 6-shot cylinder, loading lever, 3-screw frame, and fixed blade front sight. Blued metal finish, brass trigger guard, and one piece plain walnut grips. Markings include one-line New York barrel address, and cylinder engraving of Texas-Mexico Navy battle. Also appears to have a faint cartouche marked on left side grip. Serial numbers on arbor and wedge both match gun. Manufactured sometime between 1860-1873.


Fair to good. Bore and cartridge chambers are dark. Blued metal finish appears to have worn away entirely. Wood grips have minor scratches and bites overall. Cartouche is illegible and only partially visible. Grips have some wiggle room. 

Estimate: $800 - $1,200
