Good looking Pocket model.  39000 range serial and being a six shot, would make it the real deal made in 1852.  That is when Colt came out with the 6 shot pocket models.  If so, it's probably been refinished; but, would take an inspecction by someone knowledgeable about pocket models to tell for sure.

Congrats on the 1 of 500 Baby Dragoon cased set.

The cylinder looks like it could be a refinish - looks like the scene is gone but the blue looks hardly worn

either way it's a sweet little gun - I wouldn't mind owning it

I too am wondering it it has been refinished. The cylinder scene is gone and on the side where it says, "Colt's Patent" is really worn down. When I take the gun apart, inside it looks like it is brand new.
I gave $250 for it so I do not think I got hurt.

Fingers, thanks for the congrats on the cased baby!  They are all gone now except one 1851 Navy. It is unfired and unturned.  I do not need it. If anyone is interested where it is drop me a note

Terry, I need a NIB F series 1851 Navy - for the right price.  The boxed one I have has the slightest turn ring on it & I need one at 100% instead of 99.5%

 Not a great buy but not horrible. The owner had bought a collection and I believe this is the last one.

I have included sellers description. It is accurate. I have seen this gun.

Thanks for the info.  I've seen that one.  It is about 30% over -priced for the current market for a Grant.  And what I'm looking for is a black box F series.  The Grant is a C series - and I have one already

It's the end of his inventory and you are right, a bit high. He did tell me that his pilosophy is that the unfired and unturned Colts are getting to be fewer and fewer. Several he has sold recently are now fired. He says he can afford to set on them. He has litterally thousands of guns. That store is supposed to be the biggest BP store west of the Mississippi. I do not doubt it.

Good luck with your search. If I run across one I will let you know.
