    $ 2600 tops. Very nice gun though just not as much demand for them nowadays.

    It looks much better than average from what I can see. Not much of any blue finish, but not everyone wants them that nice. I sold one about like this recently for $2450.

    I agree 100%. It is overpriced but Id sure like to find one in that condition at a fair price. Funny thing . I was in my local gun store today that specializes in old west/cowboy shooter/civil war re-enacting, and black powder guns and they said that lately, there has been a surge in percussion revolver sales ( Italian). I found that very interesting.

    Wow! Wish I had known. Do you have a website or place that you list your guns for sale?

    Colt percussions in general or the 1860 Army? Is it because of the 'Graying" of the collector base? (I am including myself here!!).

    That and a lot less interest in the Civil War . Ive always been fascinated by the Civil War and study everything I can find on it. I love the guns of that era.

    Not much finish left. And the hammer screw looks doubtful. I see better Colts for sale here, though they aren't cheap.

    Ive been drooling over that one but $10K ? No way Id ever pay that for a Colt percussion. He has a couple of guns I'd like to buy but the prices are way out there.
