I just started to collect Colt Navy and Army Revolvers. I'd like to concentrate on the 2nd generation ones but this 3rd Generation 1860 Army was just to nice to pass up. I'll post 2 pictures. The Army I got LAST month and the Navy I got THIS month. (I hope that's OK) I hope to get more.

Nice. Give us a little more detail on the Army (who, what, when, where, how...) -- maybe a closeup of the gun.

From the book COLT BLACKPOWDER REPRODUCTIONS & REPLICAS by Dennis Adler.

Approximately 129,000 Model 1860 Revolvers were issued to US troops for Civil War service. More 1860 Armys were purchased by the US gov't than any other model Colt or any other make of black powder revolver. Some 200,500 1860 Armys were manufactured, making it the second highest production Colt up to that time.

I tried to take a better pic of the Army but don't think it came out as good as I wanted, Sorry. Colt started to produce "Blackpowder" pistols in 1970 and stopped around 2004 (Not positive on the dates but they're close). They made quite a lot of them and many variations some more rare than others. There are 2nd generation models and 3rd generation models. What distinguishes the two is the origin of the unfinished parts of the gun and how mush of it was actually finished by Colt itself. THEY ARE ALL TRUE COLTS THOUGH. (That's what I like about them) As I said I like the 1860 Army and 1851 Navy the best but also like some of the others too. They are just beautiful works of art in my opinion. Some people collect paintings. I like these Colt pistols. I don't plan to shoot them. Because they are not made anymore I think they will increase in value over time. I had an 1860 army that I bought in the 70's. Sold it a few years ago for about a $150 profit (but not much of a profit cause of inflation). If I had that gun now they are going for around $600 to $800. I regret selling it. The prices are going up pretty fast and to find real nice examples gets a bit expensive. I plan to keep looking. My knowledge of these guns is just beginning. There is much more I need to know. The search is fun.

Default Happy Oktoberfest!

Here's my new early Germanic matchlock pistol. Coupla feet long. That's a Landsknecht short Katzbalger sword next to it.
