Cased 1849 Pocket Model
« on: January 20, 2021, 12:36:58 PM »
Mailman dropped this 1863 vintage, 6 shot, 4 inch barrel 1849 Pocket Model yesterday.  It's nothing special.  It has some bluing showing, along with faded case colors.   It locks up with no over rotation, and has no cylinder turn line. The case is by Bill's Cases, Flask is a modern reproduction, as is the cap tin.  Nipple wrench is 2nd Gen and the mold is a well used original - I think.  I've already swapped the Flask and mold with what I think are originals.  I need to get my Percussion Accoutrements book out and do some research.

 Nothing special? Still pretty nice. By “vintage” do you mean original or older reproduction?

The Pocket Model is an original made in 1863.  In the bottom photo, the case, nipple wrench and cap in are modern.
