Extremely rare Colt First Model 1855 Percussion Revolving Sporting Rifle, Manufactured around 1856-1860, .36 Cal. ?, S/N 2XX, According to ''The Book of Colt Firearms'' by Wilson, only 300 were manufactured in this configuration. 25'' Full Round barrel, there is the possibility the original barrel was shortened & rethreaded as there is no octagon lead in on the receiver end, barrel address is good, Wood is very good, solid & original, with excellent fit & matching serial numbers stamped at wrist under the tang. However, it has numerous small contusions, gouges & dings, with some gouges filled in & an added coat of finish, also has two faint military cartouche located on the left wrist of stock. Metal has very little factory finish as all surfaces have had rust & pitting heavily scrubbed, finish added & some gray/brown patina of that finish remains, Bore is black powder, Metal buttplate, front & rear sight match those seen on other examples. Stock has unique & ornate patch box storage. Has a secondary spring loaded plunger mounted on side of receiver & a screw on cleaning rod also mounted on left side. Both very unique & excellent, period gunsmithing. Not sure if those features are factory. Very scarce & highly collectible specimen. No FFL Req. - Value: 3000 to 6000
