Project Description

This is a 1/3 scale Colt “Texas” Paterson percussion revolver made by Miniart in Moscow, Russia.  4 1/8″ long overall with a 2 1/2″ octagon barrel of about .112 caliber.  Unlike the Larry Smith miniature Colt Patersons, this miniature is 100% fully functional.  The cylinder rotates, indexes, lines up correctly, and the trigger drops down into position when the hammer is cocked.  This miniature will shoot if you can find the proper percussion caps and lead bullets!  The hammer has both half and full cock, and has a checkered hammer spur.  The top barrel flat is laser marked with the proper Colt Paterson barrel address.  One piece straight grained walnut grip.  Includes a functional copper & brass five spout powder flask, a spare cylinder, a functional single cavity bullet mold with sprue cutter and walnut handles, a  combination tool which is a screwdriver/ loading lever/nipple wrench, a fully functional gold plated capper with embossed lid, a walnut handled cleaning rod with jagged end, and the case key. Complete with a contemporary type walnut casing with hinged top and miniature Colt key lock.  The case top of the case with a beautiful piece of highly figured burl walnut.  The interior French fit and lined in a burgundy felt.  Mint condition.  The flask and capper with a nice aged patina.  It’s been  over a year since I have been able to offer one of these for sale.  From the personal miniature collection of Joel Morrow.  Stock # JM-82.  Price:  $2,850.00.
