Looks great pal.  Have fun shooting it, I have a soft spot for pocket models.

I don't have any Pocket Models but the 1849 is probably my favorite one because it was around from the California Gold Rush at least up to the Civil War.

Hi Hewy, You have a beautiful revolver there. Good luck with it.

I'm looking forward to your shooting report.

Regards,
Richard

Nice one, Hewy.  Good pic of Colt & Company’s number one best seller.

California Gold Rush gun , never thought
that. And it sits today in Calif.

Take it out
And make it shine,
Over on Highway Forty-Nine.
