Here is my Colt Model 1855 Sporting Rifle, serial numbered 1427. It is a .36 caliber rifle with a 27" barrel. It has been reported that some 1,000 to 1,500 sporting rifles were made but actual serial numbers reported would strongly suggest a lot less of this particular model were actually made. The serial numbers of all of the sidehammer versions, including the military rifles, were serialed together which makes finding the actual numbers of each variation made nearly impossible.

Many if not most of these will have nicely figured stocks.

I just picked up this Colt M2012 made for Colt by Cooper. It's in .308, a laminated stock and I mounted a Colt Optics 3-9x scope on it.


Here it is with my other M2012 with a heavy barrel and an aluminum chassis it's mounted in. The scope is a Colt Optics 10x model.

What caliber are your large frames
They are 38/56, 40/60, 45/85. Still chasing the 50. Thought I had one a few months ago. But of course something came up at the same time. A guy in Penn, had carbine and baby carbine for sale, in 38/40. These would of finished off my Medium frames. Photos were exchanged, price agreed to, time to meet for inspection, (with in a week), Night before I was taking off to get them, he cancelled the deal. Hopefully it was just a change of mind, not having found a better deal. That would piss me off. Anyway, by then the 50 cal was gone. Also that is a nice looking 44 you have there.

Bigwagon, that's a nice early, no dust cover, rifle. Take care of it.

Some pics of my newest baby!

My Colt 1883 Hammerless Double 10 ga. Born in 1893, about 8.5 pounds, 32" barrels, double triggers and extractors. Chokes unknown, I can find no markings on the barrels to signify choke. Bores are excellent. Wood is nice and she locks up like a vault.
