London Colt revolvers were produced at the Hartford, Connecticut Colt factory and made for public sale overseas at their London office. Scarce and seldom encountered, the London Colt revolver was made in very limited production. Quantities total some 42,000 London pieces of all variations. This .44 caliber 1860 Army pattern has an iron backstrap and trigger guard with all matching numbers. The finish is light brown with areas of moderate pitting. The barrel marking “COL COLT LONDON” is light but visible. The action holds on all positions with a good cylinder lockup, but the hammer is able to fall when the trigger is pulled on the half cock position. The walnut grips are in very good shape. Overall, a nice example of a scarce London Colt.
