Woody, did Colt actually make a 1861 Sheriff or is it a reproduction model?

From what I've read and come across with Pietta Replicas ... most do or could have authentic backgrounds. As Colt did only produce certian models on a regulaproduction line ... I've read where the barrel lengths could be specified to customer's request.
So I'd say you could have gotten this one from Colt on special order, reguardless of other non believer's tales  :) I have one and with a Kirst .38spl/.38Colt konvertor. This was and I'veread it existed for the 1862Y(year  made) Army Police Revolver...I wished I'd saved the story on it.
Besides that many Post Civil War Revs were changed as they found their way into the Civilian sector along with special requests made by Soldiers during the War and adhered to by the Armor, i.e. 1851 Navy barrels shot out and rebored to a .44cal C&B and fitted with a n1860 Army Colt cylinder ... anything could have been achieved ...
But Colt Factory only offered particiular standard models with an optional Barrel length offer. {;( Hope that helps...it's my findings and beliefs anyway from what I have found to have existed.

Here's Mine a Convertable .36 C&B & .38SPL Pietta/Kirst Colt 1861 5.5"bbl



Colt Factory made this combination iof the 1849 Poket and the 1862 Pocket police in .38Colt(Long) so nothing would surprise me ...

Woody,

I was just looking in my new 7th ed Blue Book to get an idea of value and I do not see a 1861 Sheriff by Pietta listed. I realize they do not have everything, that is for sure.

Terry I think these were offered by Cabelas around 2007. All it is is a 1861 Navy with a 5 inch barrel instead of the original 7 1/2 inch barrel and they called it a Sheriff Model. They now offer the same 5 inch model with a fluted cylinder and call it a 1862 Army police model. What ever sells I guess!! ;)

Terry,

The 1861 Navy is listed at the bottom of page 199.  It is a composite listing for a number of variations.

1861 Navy - .36 or .44 (disc) cal.  perc., 5.5 or 7.5 inch barrel.............................

Then there is the 1862 New York Metro Police with half fluted cylinder; the 1862 Police with the round to octagonal dragoon barrel; then the Police Pony Express, then the Police Sheriff's models all on page 200.  Take your pick.  All of them are full framed 6 shot models.

Unfortunately it is not going to work. I have bought 3 guns this month and wife is not at all hot on the idea of more. If you still have it next next month I can probably do it.

Sorry
