Colt Pocket Police Conversion

Circa 1873-1875

This 1862 Colt Pocket Police Conversion was converted from .36 caliber percussion to a .38 center fire metallic cartridge revolver sometime between 1873 – 1875.

The revolver shows the plugged loading lever lug on the barrel. It has a five-shot cylinder and a 5 ½” barrel with the “New York” barrel address.  Along with 1871 & 1872 patent dates. Also, the revolver shows a sharp, completely visible, stagecoach holdup scene on the cylinder along with standard walnut grips.

It is in fine overall condition retaining approximately 85% of its original nickel finish. Most of the nickel loss is on the brass backstrap, with the remainder of the gun showing some blistering and flaking of the nickel.  Also, the walnut grips are in fine condition with no damage or losses, showing an added coating of varnish. The revolver is fully functional with a very good bore and all the serial numbers (43773) match, including the loading gate. The barrel wedge is un-numbered. The barrel has a period replaced front blade sight made of brass.
