All Original, Barn Found, Civil War, M1860 Colt Army Revolver with cylinder with loads. Standard M1860 percussion Civil War revolver, 6 shot .44 cal. with inspectors initials on various metal parts. Revolver has 6 original bullets intact loaded in cylinder. This revolver was meant for action as it has had barrel cut down to just over 4 1/2" & has had, probably gunsmith done, round brass front sight added.  Loading lever was not used after this revolver went to the shorted barrel. Metal has pitting but still has -Address Saml Colt New York U.S. America- intact on top of round barrel. You can still read most of the Colt Patent on left side of frame. You can still read serial nos. 72438 (1862) on barrel, frame & brass trigger guard. You can still see the lines on cylinder where the Colt patent was & can read the 1850 under it & just a shadow of the 8 of the serial no. You can read Gov't inspectors mark D & T on cylinder. No caps left on nipples. Inspectors mark H on bottom of triggerguard & bottom of original wood grips. Action still works but have to point downward for cylinder to rotate & hammer locks back & snaps when trigger is pulled. Original, really weathered wood grips intact with one side has a crack. Original wedge intact. Have tried to take this Colt army apart but the screws are rusted tight & I don't want to take the chance of messing up this revolver. Revolver was found in southern Ky near Smiths Grove , Ky.  If this gun could talk it surely could tell some tales. This revolver was probably shortened after the War & was either a lawman's or Outlaws weapon. Wonder why someone would load a percussion revolver & then just leave it unless it was left in a hurry???
