This is a beautifully engraved, 1849 Colt Pocket Revolver in fine condition. Action, edges and markings are near perfect. The gun retains 95% original blue on its barrel mixing with little specs of corrosion that do not really detract from its beautiful appearance. We'd all rather that it not be there, but it is what it is. The lever and hammer show all of their case colors mixing from mousy grey to shades of blue and the frame has all of its grat case. The grips retain 99% varnish with minimal wear and the silver is all there. This is a gun that was most likely engraved by Gustav Young himself, judging from the deep quality of the engraving. The scrolling is extremely well executed and the right barrel lug shows a screaming dogs-head. The scene is excellent save for some minor, very tiny age powder pits from not cleaning the back of the cylinder after firing. This is a great gun that could be cased, and should be.
