Any GreyBoxer Patersons out there?
« on: September 02, 2017, 05:08:13 PM »
I recently learned that Colt Blackpowder Arms Co. did a few standard Patersons  Anyone seen one around?

I d  like to have one. 

I like my collection of, basically, 1 example each of Colt s repeaters.  The Paterson is the only one I don t  have.  , ,

From what I have heard the normal, non-engraved Sig Series Paterson is more rare than the engraved ones. I have seen 3 or 4 engraved ones for sale on Gunbroker, Guns America and/or Guns International in the past couple years but I don't think I have ever seen a normal one. Factoid 1: the engraved Sig Series Paterson does not have the "Sam Colt" signature on the backstrap. I don't think the normal one does either but I am not 100% sure. Factoid 2: The correct barrel address for both the engraved and non-engraved version reads "Patent Arms M'g. Co. Paterson N.J. Colt's Pt." but there was at least one non-engraved one that had a barrel address which read: "Samuel Colt Texas Paterson".

Thanks for the great info.  Something for me to watch out for.  I do want one that is as authentic as possible. , and Colt Blackpowder Arms Co.  did some sketchy stuff,-  funky stamps and stuff.

Seems the Paterson is going to stay on my wish list for some time to come.    C r a p.

Still looking for this.  I want it.  My collection, short of various others that I may become interested in, ,  I want a  basic example of all the Colts.,  as near as the originals as possible.  This means Colt/Colt BPAC are the only two sources I am considering.

Anyway,  I will gladly give a finders fee,  a nice one! ,  to anyone that can help me with this.

There is something about those Paterson revolvers.  I have an engraved Signature Series.  It is a thing of beauty.  I also have a pristine Uberti version with the loading lever.  Another beauty.  I have seen only one unengraved Signature Paterson for sale.  But that was a couple of years ago.

Supposedly,  there might be approximately only 200 of the engraved versions.  The plain ones might be around the same number.  I have no way to prove or disprove that information.  It just comes in trickles from postings and conversations.  At least it is interesting.   8)

Once, I knew a lady who colleted dolls.  The collection was worth, maybe, a half-mil.  The dolls came in gray boxes, blue boxes, pink boxes, stripes, polka dots in various editions and on and on. It was a real chick-thing. This Colt gen x, y, z stuff in various colored boxes very much reminds me of her.
