Hi,

I have been having problems identifying this colt and finding out some information about it. Overall length is about 11 inches. Serial number is 199,xxx. If you need anything else just ask!

Thanks,
Phil

It looks like a model 1849 31 caliber revolver with a 6" barrel to me. The caliber should be marked on the rear left triggerguard flat unless it's worn off.

That's what it is, manufactured in 1862. If original, the same serial number (or the last four or five digits) will be seen on the bottom of the barrel lug, frame, trigger guard, bottom of the grip frame, side of the cylinder, bottom of the cylinder pin, top of the loading lever and written in the rear channel between the two halves of the one-piece grips.
