RJT#2882 -


Manufactured in 1877. Less than 2100 Model 1860 Richards-Mason revolvers have been produced. That makes it one of the scarcest Colt cartridge conversion revolvers ever made. Equipped with the distinctive breech plate with cut-away top and no rear sight, hammer with slotted face and riveted firing pin and barrel with distinctive "S" contour. The face of the ejector rod head has the cross hatch pattern. The revolver has turned a blue/brown patina on the barrel, ejector assembly, cylinder and backstrap. The frame and hammer no longer show casehardened finish.  The one-piece grips have no finish remaining. The top of the barrel is marked: "COLT'S PT. F.A MFG. CO. HARTFORD, CT. U.S.A." in one line reading toward the breech. The "two July" patent marks are located on the left side of the frame. Matching numbers on the barrel, frame, cylinder, trigger guard and backstrap. 
The barrel length is 5 3/4 inches. .44 Center Fire, Serial Number: 6780.
Mechanically functions as it should. A good and completely original example of one of the more sought after Colt cartridge conversion revolvers. Comes with an old bunk house made holster which looks like it was made for it many many years ago.

These revolvers were carried in the Old West.
