Interesting, they have one that appears to be color case hardened and in the description it says it has an iron frame but no mention of cch. I have heard some of the late ones were cch but never saw any hard evidence of it but this is an early one. (^h

Nice photos.   

The third one down is a Beals frame with N. M. Army parts.   

I have one that is a N. M. Army frame with mostly Beals parts. ( Barrel, Cylinder, hammer )   The loading lever is a N.M. Army one.

Thanks for posting the link . . . .  :)

Thx Prof.

It´s kind a neat seing how the 1858 develops into final form. Interesting.

A reflection. Why is it that the Colts often look like ten times worse then the Remingtons? Don´t get me wrong,there´s original Remingtons in really bad shape too,it´s just that finding a Colt 1860 for instance with loads of the original blueing seems about impossible?

What´s more,and this might just be "trick of the week",but why is it the Colts fetch higher amounts on a whole-as it seems at least-then the Remmys?

Colt's were more popular and got more use. As for bringing more why does a Winchester bring more than a Marlin? It's popularity.

At W1386 – Is the case hardening original, do you suppose?  If so, his rearranges what I thought I “knew”?  Very informative, very informative …

The Professor never disappoints.  Fun and valuable material.  Thank you.

Being a war date I highly doubt it. I also doubt any were cch at the factory. Colt case hardened their frames right up to the smokeless period but their frame were iron. Remington frames were steel so there was no need for hardening. The fact that they said this one was iron is probably from lack of knowledge.

happy to be able to entertain...
i literally stumbled across that one whilst just looking for parts  (^h

Say, Wolfgang, didn't you have a post about which parts fit in your original?

Yes, that one certainly looks to be CCH.
