A Rare Richards Conversion Of The Colt Model 1860 Army Percussion To Cartridge Revolver
Offered for sale is an Antique US Colt Richards Conversion, from the Model 1860 Army Revolver, in 44 Percussion, to .44 Colt CF Metallic, now Obsolete calibre. This example has a serial number of 190768, which places it in the range of 167000- 200614. It has an 8 inch round barrel, with a clear New York address. The rifled bore is good. This example is believed to be a factory conversion. The rebated 6 shot cylinder has faint traces of naval scene, and has a serial number ending ..0768, matching to the original Model 1860 Percussion numbers. There is a hinged loading gate to the RHS of the cylinder, and a spring loaded ejector rod in it’s housing, mounted to the RHS of the barrel. The trigger guard is in brass. The backstrap, and lower strap, are in steel. Action to all 6 chambers is strong, with accurate indexation. All metal parts are intact. This example has ALL matching numbers, and traces of retained blue. Total production was 9000, which was between 1873-78, and this example was probably made very early prior to the later Richard Mason conversions. These were the first successful Colt cartridge revolvers, after the expiry of the Rollin White patent in 1871. These were true “Gunfighters revolvers” in the early days of the Wild West, and proved to be a much more practical conversion than the Thuer. They are far RARER than the SAA Peacemakers that arrived in 1873, which numbered over 150K
The original one piece walnut stock is intact, and to a patina of age.
