COLT 1860 FLUTED ARMY
SN 4372

This is a solid, very good condition Colt Fluted Army manufactured in 1860.  It has an eight inch barrel with Hartford address and has all matching serial numbers.  The serial number is found on the barrel, frame, trigger guard, back strap, grips, cylinder, cylinder pin and barrel wedge.  All of the components of the gun are original to include the internal parts, the mainspring and the screws.  It is mostly a smooth brown patination with a crisp action.  the patent date is still visible in the flute of the cylinder, as well as the Colt patent mark on the left frame.  The Fluted Army came in two distinct finishes.  One was the commercial finish which has varnished grips and silver plated back strap and trigger guard.  It also had a high luster blue.  The other variant was military finish where the grips are oil finished, the back strap and trigger guard are not plated and the blue was a low luster, less shiny finish.  This gun was originally manufactured in military finish and has a beautiful set of oil finished grips.  It is hard to find these in decent condition anymore.  SOLD!!
