Colt Conversions

  • Colt 1849 Pocket Cartridge Conversion. Unusual cartridge conversion of a Colt 1849 pocket revolver. Gun has mixed numbers and only some of the numbers are legible. This gun has an original cartridge conversion barrel that has been sleeved to .25 caliber. The cylinder has been replaced with a wood block that is decorated with patriotic themed ornaments. There is no provision for firing. Our guess is this could be some sort of stage prop, but we do not really know. We would be curious if anyone has an idea. All parts are in nice condition.

  • Colt 1849 Pocket Revolver Converted to Single Shot.  Converted to .22 Caliber Single Shot. Made in 1854. Gun has a smooth brown patina. The barrel has been sleeved to .22 caliber and the rear portion of the barrel is where the chamber is. The cylinder has no chambers and was not made during the period of use. The cylinder houses the firing pin, but does not revolver. The hammer hits the back of the cylinder that ha the firing pin which hits the cartridge that is chambered at the back of the barrel. This requires the barrel to be removed each time the gun is loaded and unloaded. Interesting conversion.
