3016P Colt House Model, 2 5/8 barrel, 41 cal., 5 shot, wood, holster, 1876

Description

3016P Colt House Model, cal. 41rf, 5 shot 2 5/8 inch barrel, walnut grips, brass and blue, manuf. 1876, SN 97XX. The other Model is the 4 shot Clover Leaf which is more common as they manuf. 7500 Clover Leafs and 2150 of the House Pistol, both maunuf. between 1871-76. The House Model had either nickel plated or plain brass frames, this one was not plated. The barrel is stamped COLT’S HOUSE PISTOL over HARTFORD CT. U.S.A., a 2- line address. The top strap groove is stamped PAT. SEPT. 19, 1871.
Not easily stamped in a narrow rounded groove. All stamps clear and readable. The action works correctly with a half cock and the hammer has some light case color. The bore has strong rifling and is a shiny 8.5. The barrel and cylinder have turned a pleasing patina and the brass is smooth without dings or pits. This hard to find Colt comes with a time period custom formed holster that fits it perfectly. The stitching is solid but the strap for the brass snap broke off in times past, the belt loop is still good. A rare holster made only for the House Pistol.
I have discounted the price for one minor negative which can be corrected. I could not remove the cylinder pin as it is frozen in the cylinder. It does not interfere with the action, only being able to remove the cylinder for cleaning. With soaking it can be removed.
Overall condition very good plus.
