Crisp and tight example of a military issue Colt .44 percussion Army model serial #101163 manufactured in early 1863. The weapon has a mis-matched cylinder (#1549) which often happens when more than one loaded cylinder was carried by a soldier. The grips are 20th century Ivorex, added in the 1960s. The barrel retains a crisp one line Colt New York marking as shown. The index of the cylinder is slightly off, causing rotation to not always happen–a very minor repair, if you intend to fire it.
