Antique 1851 .36 Cal Colt Navy 4th Model

Here we offer another classic firearm of the civil war era and early days of the wild west. Many soldiers or their family members would buy their own hand gun privately on the civilian market before they set off to war. This fact is proven in countless studio portrait photos of the period. Further, as the west opened during the 1860s, these reliable handguns were purchased for self defense by cowboys, lawmen and settlers prior to the introduction of the more reliable cartridge firearms.

This civilian pistol is in fine condition, a 2 on the Antique Gun rating scale, with it original wood grip fitting tight and showing no wear. The frame, cylinder and barrel are free of pitting or corrosion, with very minor surface scratches on the right side near the securing pin, retaining about 50% of its original finish. The action is mechanically functional and tight. The image on the cylinder is still visible and there is some minor dirt around the percussion nipples. There are no government marshal inspector marks on this firearm that would indicate it is military issue. It has crisp and clear maker marks on the top of the octagonal 7" barrel "Address Col Sam Colt - New York - US America", with the letters forming the word "New" being rather thin. It has matching serial 110114 on the barrel, frame and other components, but the cylinder is mismatched with serial #183. The .36 Cal. bore is clear of rust or pitting, with its groves showing minimal wear. A nice example of a classic civil war era antique firearm.

(The frame pin has not been removed to check the serial number, these slides are rarely matched to the gun and no guarantee is offered here that it matches the frame or cylinder.)

This is an antique percussion hand gun and does not require a PAL.

1860 Light Cavalry Sabre US marked blade

The 1860 Light Cavalry sabre was the standard sword for the Union Soldier on horse back. It was an improvement in design, even though it looks much like the old 1840 "wrist Breaker" it replaced. The brass hilt has a lovely patina with a clean blade, with normal dulling to its surface. The grip is complete and the blade is tight to the hilt and suffer three minor chips or dents as seen in the pic provided. The scabbard has both rings, but has developed a light brown patina to its surface. An overall solid example of the pattern and well marked. Markings read on one side the manufacturer Mansfield and Lamb and the other US indicating military service, DFC for the inspector and manufacture date of 1862, a date many collectors prefer because its early enough to have been used during the major battles of 1862 to 1865.
