#4888 Colt Model 1855 “Root” Sidehammer revolver, 17XXX serial rangeType 2

Description

#4888 Colt Model 1855 “Root” Sidehammer revolver, 17XXX serial rangeType 2 with 3-1/2” barrel, 28caliber, round cylinder with rolled scene (traces of which are mixed with dings and nicks on the cylinder). The exterior retains about 25-30% coverage of 20% density original blue-brown with some good trace amounts of crystal bright blue in the more protected areas, the grips are very FINE and retain most of the original varnish. Okay, that was the GOOD stuff. On the downside, the gun is missing a few parts, those being the cylinder pin and screw, and the cylinder stop spring. But if it is used mainly as a display piece …or some collector has a lesser parts gun that has these parts, this Root is a very, VERY decent piece to restore. It might also be noted that the Model 1855 was the very troublesome and unreliable model that almost caused Col. Colt to go bankrupt in the late 1850s. The 1849 and 1851 models were so successful that they staved off the creditors and that gave Colt the breathing room into the early 1860s and the highly successful Army Model. Except for the missing pieces, easily “VG” as described. $695
