Won this one off of Gunbroker Sunday.  Can't wait till it gets here.  Will try it out when the weather and stay home directive improves.

Wow Fingers. That is gorgeous.

It looks to have a bit more finish on it than some of your other acquisitions. I can't wait for a full report.

 There were 37 pictures in the GB listing.  From them it appears to be in excellent condition. I'll post more when it gets here.

I have seen modern replicas that don't look as nice as that!

Sorry, I fat fingered the heading on the OP.  It's not a 1 of 1810, it's 1 of 1850.  Sorry for the error

Really good lookin revolver Fingers. Congrats!!!

Guess I been under a rock all my life, I have never encountered in person nor lit read , about the 6 shot Colt pocket's. Has to be 31 cal as the navy cal would be too thin with 6 holes in the same diameter cylinder.

Great find my friend.
