Colt Police 1862


 

    Police 1862 with 5 1/2" barrel and London proofmarks, made in 1862.

 

This Colt Police 1862 is in fair condition. Good working order with matching numbers, except for the wedge.

Although the Colt factory was leading in standardizing and mechanical assembly, much was done by human hands, like stamping serial numbers. The "8" in the serial of this Police seems to be stamped upside down.
