COLT WELLS FARGO 1849 POCKET
LONG FRAME, SMALL GUARD
MFG'D 1855

This is a pleasant three inch barrel Wells Fargo Pocket Model.  The serial numbers are matching with the exception of an unnumbered barrel wedge.  The grips retain much of the original varnish, the back strap and trigger guard retain 90% of the original silver plate and the action is crisp.  The barrel address is light but visible as is the Colt's patent mark on the left frame.  The cylinder retains all the safety pins but the cylinder scene is virtually gone.  An excellent discussion of the Wells Fargo variation is found in the book "Colt's Pocket 49 It's Evolution" by Jordan & Watt.  Their discussion begins on page 63.  Of interest is the fact that this gun has a single numeral "8" stamped under the serial number on the frame and trigger guard.  This is one of the interesting details they point out in the book.  A decent looking honest little Wells Fargo.  Price $1,750. Reduced $1,550
