Not as in Samuel Colt but as in Sam. The guns owner down in Holland!  (?^ (?^

If you haven´t read it elsewhere these two fellow BP enthusiast took the jump and drove up here to me in Sweden to get to shoot these guns. Laws in Holland are,from what i´ve understood,rather cumbersome in comparsion to ours - where we´re still let to use these old war horses.
In doing so they sent a couple of Colts up here,an 1860 Army and an 1851 Navy,and i have to say that it was real interesting to get an idea of their hold on "quality" as it´s often discussed within the collector community.

This there 1860 i for one would judge as a tad above average. There´s still an ever slight cyl scene to be seen,but that´s about it. All original finish might be gone,but from a tech perspective the gun´s alright.
Needs to have its end shake reset and the nipples needs to come out,but that´s about it. Of course it needs to come under the magnifying glass before we fill it up with powder,but i´d be a little puzzled to find any issues with that seeing the state of the thing.

This then an entire different whooo factor to it!  {:( To be quite candid i´ve rarely seen such beautiful patina on ANY old antique gun. It´s mind boggling even!
Indeed that feel of it being "solid" goes with it,and again..what needs to be adressed is end shake and nipples. Then again..
Me that really ain´t into Colts,at all,would happily fork over for this one in a heartbeat!

But. Seeing current workload,you´ll have to be a little patient here. There WILL be updates tho.

Fabulous looking pair of old warhorses there Jesper.

That 1851 Navy looks far better than mine.

Yep, licencing restrictions, Down here in sunny España they (antiques) they are all on a licence. Either AE or Libro de coleccionista.
