Project Description

!!!!!SOLD!!!!!  This is a 1/3 scale Colt Paterson revolver by master miniature maker Larry Smith of Florida.  3 5/16″ long overall with a 1 21/32″ octagon barrel of .122 caliber.  The frame and backstrap are silver plated.  The barrel is finished in the white.  The cylinder is finished in the white except for the engraved bands which are charcoal blued.  The cylinder does not index when the hammer is cocked, like all of Larry’s Colt Patersons, & must be manually indexed or rotated by hand.  The trigger, wedge, recoil shield, trigger spring, & screws are all finished in a charcoal blue. The barrel has the barrel addresses which read “-L.H. SMITH-FLA. U S A-”  The barrel does not have the wedge screw which is typical on Larry’s earlier Colt Patersons.  The hammer has both half & full cock, & the hammer spur is not checkered.  The serial number 111 is stamped into the bottom of the backstrap, bottom front of the frame, and the bottom rear of the barrel.  Brass bead front sight.  One piece ivory grip with a beautiful aged patina.  This revolver will shoot the 2mm pinfire cartridges.  Near mint condition except for some expected thinning & tarnish to the silver plating.  What really makes this miniature is the included original Larry Smith black leather flap style military holster!  This is only the second one of these I have ever seen, & the only one I have ever been able to offer for sale.   The back side of the holster is marked on the belt loop “-L.H., SMITH, 2, -L. H., SMITH” in five lines.  The top front of the flap is marked “L S”.  A really nice Larry Smith Colt Paterson with an ultra rare original Larry Smith holster.  !!!!!SOLD!!!!!
