  1. 1860 Army Conversion Cylinder Review

    Colt Percussion Revolvers
    I finally went out this morning to try out the 1860 Army conversion cylinder I purchased from Taylor’s. Here are some thoughts; First off, the fact that I was shooting modern cartridges in an 1860 Army is awesome. I know there are plenty of conversion models that make it easier than using the...

  3. Anyone want to educate me on 2 Colt 1860 Army's?

    Colt Percussion Revolvers
    Thanks in advance for any input you could offer. These belong to an older friend of mine who is not internet savvy and he asked me to research them for him. I've owned/collected all types of firearms, but these are just not in my wheelhouse. I think both are a "transition model" with the...
  4. Colt 1860 Army- Pics added- Need opinions please

    Colt Percussion Revolvers
    I am looking at a 4 digit serial number Colt 1860 Army 4 screw with the fluted cylinder. I am quite new to Colt percussion revolvers. Would it be safe to say that this was a Union sidearm? I looked up the serial number, and it looks like a manufacture date of 1861. If I buy this gun should I...
  5. Hello from Scottsdale, Arizona I primarily collect Genuine Colt Percussion Revolvers

    New Members Introduction
    Hi, I like anything that goes bang or has a sharp edge. In terms of genuine Colt firearms, I mostly have percussion revolvers. My collection consists of 1st and 2nd gen models. I hear that my stainless steel 1860 Army is relatively rare. Below is a photo of a couple of my Colts.

    Colt Revolvers
    Anybody know if serial number 2103XX would be a second generation, F1200 blackpowder series? Also, it has the W.L. Ormsby engraver stamp on the cylinder. Would 2nd gen have this? Thanks, Colter

  8. WTS: Second Generation Colt 1860 Army .44--Stainless Steel

    Want to Sell
    Scarce stainless steel model 2nd-generation Colt 1860 Army .44 (Model F1210). NIB condition--never fired, never turned. Box looks like new. All paperwork still sealed in original plastic packaging. Price: $1,050
  9. WTB--2nd Generation Colt 1860 Army

    Want to Sell
    Prefer engraved cylinder to fluted cylinder. NIB not necessary, but piece must be unfired and have no scratches or wear. Original packaging unnecessary. Presentation case unnecessary (already have enough powder flasks, molds, and nipple wrenches and my own display case).
  10. WTB--Guide Screw for Colt Signature Series 1860 Army / 1861 Navy

    Want to Sell
    The "guide screw" on the 3rd Gen frame corresponds to the "shoulder stock screw" on original Colts, but THEY ARE NOT THE SAME SIZE. I bought a shoulder stock screw from Dixie Gun Works, and it simply does not fit. If anyone has a line on 3rd gen Colt BP parts (other than Numrich, Dixie...
