    Thoughts on this Colt Open Top Pocket Model

    Saw this locally for sale and dont know much about them. Only that they were made from 1871 thru 1877.

    I will be getting more pics from seller this evening.

    Your thoughts?

    Thanks!!! Manny

    I think about 120,000 made.
    Colt wholesaled them20180721_173741.jpg for $3 during the contemporary recession as a way to keep the factory busy.
    for reference I bought this a few yrs ago for $900+

    I picked one up for like $100 or something about 15 years ago. It's pretty worn but it's a Colt, it has all the markings and it's just plain cool I think. If you consider the much in demand North American Arms little .22s out now, not much has really changed.

    They definitely have a place in a Colt collection. Here is one with ivory grips and cowboy engraving.

    It has an early style hammer, does not look like much pitting (black powder) on cylinder or barrel. The 22 marking on brass frame looks weak (no pic of top of barrel marks). Check for hairline cracks in the brass frame in the loading slot. Barrel to frame has a pin and latch should stay in place when action is worked. Matching serial numbers on frame and barrel is desirable.
