Description: Here we present an antique Colt 1862 Police Percussion Revolver, made in 1866. Its introduction was an attempt to fill a niche in the market for a pocket revolver suited for civilians and police of a larger caliber (.36) than the 1849 Pocket Revolver (.31). Much as the Colt 1851 Navy was a scaled-up version of the 1849 Pocket, the 1862 Police was a scaled down version of the 1861 Navy, which was a scaled down version of the 1860 Army. The result was a sleek, stylish and light, 5-shot pocket revolver in .36 caliber. Collectors today largely view these as the climax of the development of the percussion revolver. Unfortunately for Colt, the commercial market for the 1862 Police was overshadowed by cartridge revolvers. As a result, production was quite limited by Colt’s standards, and of those that were produced it is estimated that 70% of these were converted to cartridge firearms. These factors make the 1862 Police Revolver in its original percussion format quite scarce for collectors today. This has piece has obviously seen some action. The overall condition of this revolver is fine. The barrel no longer shows any of original blue finish and has an overall dark patina. All serial numbers match except for the wedge that has no serial number. The walnut grips are in good condition. The action is smooth with sharp clicks and the trigger pull is precise. Please note that on the 2nd click the cylinder is loose from use. Own the original! This is a legitimate antique and not a reproduction. Barrel is 4-1/2 inches in length. Caliber: .36 percussion Overall condition as seen in photos. Here is the scarce original percussion 1862 Police Revolver for your collection.
