Colt Mfg will tell you all you want to know and send you a certified letter...for a price.

This link is to a pdf file, you'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view it. The prices are from 2005.

A bit too steep for me.

They don't have records from before the fire though. IIRC, the original plant burned to the ground in the mid 1860s. My grandmother has a pistol that is pre-fire and Colt has no record of it at all.

There should be a bunch of guys there that could help you, but the best advice is to invest in a Colt research certificate, they will have the factory records for it I am sure, as the fire destroying Colt records was I think a good deal earlier.

My little blue Colt Book for that serial number gives a manufacturing date of 1893 (149000/153999), a year after the transverse cylinder catch was introduced..............
