Project Description

This is a 1/2 scale Colt “Baby” Paterson black powder percussion five shot revolver with the Ehler’s loading lever made by Tom Weston of Mexico City, Mexico, circa 1950 – 1965.  The revolver is 3 1/8″ long overall with a 1 9/16″ octagon barrel of .118 caliber.  Highly polished bright charcoal blue steel finish.  One piece medium dark colored walnut grip.  Blued cone front sight.  Fully functional, including the folding trigger, & the cylinder does index when the hammer is cocked.  The top barrel flat marked “- PATENT ARMS MG. CO. PATERSON NJ – COLTS PT -”  Includes the original Weston mahogany case with push button latch.  The interior semi-French fit and lined in a dark purple velour.  Accessories include the proper single spout fully functional brass powder flask, not the usual cap container cartridge ejector usually seen, a three legged bullet mold with walnut handles & brass ferules, that cast a single round ball, and the combination tool which is a nipple wrench, screwdriver, and mainspring vise.  Excellent near mint condition with just the most minor signs of handling,  I’d call it 99+%.  Price:  $4,500.00.
