Colt 1860 Army Civilian
SCARCE CIVILIAN COLT MODEL 1860 ARMY PERCUSSION REVOLVER. SN 49182. Cal 44. Blue & color case hardened with 8″ rd bbl, German silver front sight and New-York U.S. America address. The top of the barrel is roll-stamped with the one-line legend: "-ADDRESS COL. SAML. COLT NEW-YORK U.S. AMERICA-", The cylinder is roll-engraved with the Texas Navy battle scene, "COLTS PATENT No" and. "ENGAGED 16 MAY 1843" roll-engraved along the front edge of the cylinder. "COLTS/PATENT" is stamped in two-lines on the left side of the frame. "44 CAL" is stamped on the left shoulder of the trigger guard. The full serial number "49182" is stamped on the bottom of the barrel lug, frame, trigger guard, and back strap. The cylinder is stamped with the partial serial number "9182". All of the serial numbers match included the 95% nice blue wedge.
The 3-screw frame, cut for shoulder stock (very rare Wilson say’s) with flat head hammer screw , has small “COLTS PATENT” on the left side and the caliber marking is on the left shoulder of trigger guard. All the SN’s of the bottom of the revolver are accompanied by a small punch mark 2 which signifies that this revolver was to receive extra attention in the polishing room. Cylinder is rebated and usual 6 shots with Ormsby Naval battle scene roll marking. The silver plated brass trigger guard and blued steel backstrap contain a fine, varnished, 1-pc walnut grip with matching SN in the backstrap channel. This revolver was produced in 1862 during the build-up of Union forces for the Civil War and virtually any firearm produced by any American manufacturer was being purchased by the government and very few civilian arms of that era are known. Of those few civilian arms produced, the majority were private purchase for military officers and usually saw equally hard service as their martial brotheren and are rarely found with any strong original finish. After the Civil War these civilian revolvers were usually continued in service on the American Frontier, again serving under continuous harsh circumstances with limited or no maintenance. To find such a firearm today with some original finish is a true rarity.

Colt 1851 Navy Civilian
Colt Model 1851 Navy, made in January 1863
This is an all matching Colt Navy made about January, 1863. Nearly all these Colt Navy Model 1851s made during the Civil War saw service in the War, purchased on the open market by the US Army and Navy, or directly by the states to arm the troops they raised. This is in excellent shape, with little use. The most striking feature of this nice Colt is the brilliant case colors remaining on the gun.
The serial number, 139171, is matching on all parts of the gun. The wedge is numbered to this gun with “39171” stamped on the bright blue flat of the wedge. There is another number stamped below that one – since both are in the correct factory stampings, this suggests the Colt factory workman who fitted this gun together used a previously numbered wedge from the bin when the gun was first made. These both must have been made during a week when the wedge parts bin was nearly empty!
The wood stocks have the last four numerals of the serial in India Ink in the backstrap groove, as they should, and they fit perfectly and still have all the original and distinctive Colt reddish varnish on them.
The silver plating on the brass grip frames of these Colts made in the 1860s wore off quickly, but this one still has some in the protected areas, now tarnished a bit. The brass has been left to age gracefully, and not polished, and that’s how I like to see them.
The cylinder scene is complete and still has most of the original bright blue on it. The naval battle ships are clear, you can see the ENGAGED 16 MAY 1843 line is clear and crisp. The COLTS PAT No line with it’s the last 4 digits of the serial, 8171, are also crisp. The safety pin bases are there – when I got this gun, the internal cylinder leaf spring screw was loose, allowing the gun cylinder to turn freely with the hammer down, and that allowed the pins to be rubbed off. I tightened the screw, and that fixes that – this gun is as tight and well-timed as when it was new. I believe all the internal parts as well as all the external parts are original to this gun.
Most of the screw heads still have that Colt fire blue finish. The barrel has little real blue on it – most has flaked off over the years, leaving some blue on the bottom, some on the top around the ADDRESS, and some on the left side on the flat around the wedge area. The metal where the bright blue has flaked off is a pleasant patina color.
The best part of this gun is the bright case color remaining on the frame and the loading lever. These still has the bright swirls of color, including blue, red and yellow, which are so often faded on these old Colts to a silvery gray pattern, are still bright and strong. The case color on the hammer are not so bright, but still present.
This gun is an American classic. Guns in this serial range show up in National Archive lists of guns issued to Union Troopers during the Civil War.

Winchester Model 1893
Winchester 1893 Riot Shotgun 12 ga. 20” barrel
According to the Winchester factory report , this 1893 shotgun was shipped during first year of production bearing serial number 4669. The receiver retains at least 99% of the original factory high luster blue. The small parts like the carrier retain all of their original fire blue. The hammer has all of its original case color finish. The 1893 slide bar retains most of its original fire blue. The metal butt plate has at least 90% original blue. The wood is in near mint condition. The barrel retains at least 99% original finish starting to plum a bit and bore is mint and in unfired condition. It is in 12 ga. and the barrel is 20" with small set bead. It is one of the finest examples in existence.Given that many of the 1893 models were returned in 1897 when they were offered a new 1897 when trading in their 93 models, these guns are impossible to find and usually are beat to death. In either case, it is one heck of a cowboy shotgun and you never find a better one.
This is one gun that Winchester DID NOT want you to own! The 1893 pump action shotgun was a great gun and it was Winchester's very first pump action shotgun design. Unfortunately, it was caught in between two different technological eras...the end of the black powder age and the beginning of the new smokeless powder era. Since it was designed to be used with 12-gauge shells loaded with black powder ONLY, it must have really worried Winchester by the late 1890's/early 20th century as identical smokeless 12 gauge shells began to take over the market. Fearing injuries and lawsuits from smokeless shells being used in a black powder gun, Winchester began one of the earliest product recalls probably in American history by placing ads in various publications. By this point, Winchester had made over 30,000 Model 93's. The ads encouraged owners of the Winchester Model 1893's to send their guns back to Winchester in exchange for a brand new Model 1897 pump shotgun which had been re-designed for smokeless powder. Winchester destroyed every Model 1893 that was returned and that is probably what happened to most of them. Still, a few survive today and as long as the owners used them with black powder, were probably safe for many years of use. However, this is not an endorsement by us that this 120 year old gun is safe to fire. CONDITION: Near Mint.

Completely original Third Model Musket beauty that is a freeze-frame of the turn of the century! Very, very hard to find an original 1873 with 98%+++ blue, case color on lever/buttplate and fire-blue loading gate. A very handsome piece! Only 5% of the Model 1873's production was muskets and most of these were sent to foreign countries (Spain, France, Turkey, China, Japan, Australia, South American, etc.) - never to return or were destroyed - so these muskets are quite scarce. 30" three-band musket barrel with a mirror bore - wonderful. Tight action. Stock has some marks as expected, but retains 99% of original finish. Shotgun type butt. Long 17-shot tubular magazine (high capacity was a reason for its military use - if only Custer had been equipped with these, history might have been changed). Flip-up rear ladder sight with fire-blue spring. Vivid barrel address and caliber designation.

Loading port still shows 98% bright vivid fire blue. The hammer still shows 95% bright vivid case colors while the lever has about 90% case colors. Incredibly, the buttplate even has 95% original case colors remaining. Barrel has 98% bright original blue with some freckles from storage. Bands have most of their original blue intact with some light pitting on the outer edges of the rear band. Excellent screws overall...many look like they've never seen a screwdriver. The wood is in Excellent+ condition overall...completely untouched with no chips, cracks, or repairs and perfect wood to metal fit. Like most military weapons, it has lots of little nicks and bruises from being stacked in a pile. Very crisp sharp edges and contours on the wood showing almost no handling wear...just neglect. Most of the pre-1898's got used pretty hard in far-off lands which is why its so difficult to find nice antique ones.
