Been whittling down the group of 1860s and got it down to these.

Hewy,

Just saw this question. I may have had a civilian version decades ago. I have never had a replica civilian version. Not sure if they are even made but no, not recently.

If by referring to a "civilian model" means no notched frame nor threaded holes for the stock fittment, then ... I purchased a "civilian" model thusely set up from Buff Arms a year ago or so.

These were built by Mr. Colt's company but in few numbers back in the era. I really like mine and mainly for the cosmetic looks as much as anything. Played with the shoulder stock for a bit but was not impressed enough to pursue it for any length of time.

I have a few of the civilian versions myself Ted. They also came from Buffalo Arms. Of interesting note, there are several originals that left the colt factory and they did not have the fourth screw in the frame, nor the notch in the bottom of the rip frame. However, the recoil shield was cut for the shoulder stock. If I had a computer, I would post an image.
