Project Description

This is a 1/4 scale 1847 Colt Walker dragoon revolver made by the legendary Tom P. Weston of Mexico City, probably in the 1950’s. 4″ long overall with a 2 1/4″ part octagon part round barrel of .115 caliber. Blued steel finish except for the case colored hammer, yellow brass triggerguard, and yellow brass blade front sight. The top of the barrel has the proper barrel address “ADDRESS SAML COLT NEW YORK CITY”. The left side of the barrel lug, the left side of the frame, and the bottom of the gripstrap marked “A COMPANY NO 46”. The bottom of the barrel lug, frame, and triggerguard marked “46”. The left side of the barrel lug marked “US, 1847” in two lines. Checkered hammer spur, the hammer has both half and full cock and has a crisp action when the trigger is pulled. This piece is fully functional and shoot-able. These originally came with the percussion caps and bullets so they could be shot. Complete with the original Weston mahogany hinged top casing with push button latch. The case interior French fit and lined in red leather. Accessories include a Colt marked blue steel three legged bullet mold, a Colt marked brass powder flask with bullet compartment and spring loaded spout, the combination screwdriver/mainspring vise/nipple wrench, and a nice quantity of cast lead conical bullets. There are two compartments with doors, one of which stores the bullets, the lid with a small ivory knob. the other compartment is empty and is where the percussion caps would have been stored. The lid for this compartment was missing the ivory knob when I took the photos.  I had master ivory carver Dennis Holland make a replacement, so that problem is taken care of. There is a piece of paper in the lid with the Colt loading instructions. Excellent plus condition showing signs of just minor handling. One of the case hinges is missing a small brass nail, and the lid latch is broken. Very rare and seldom offered for sale. PRICE: $3,500.00.
