1849 Colt Pocket Conv. .38 RF.
1849 Colt Pocket Conv. .38 RF.

A factory engraved '49 Colt with mellow ivory grips that's still in it's original Texas form fitting holster. The pistol is worn mostly on it's barrel from the holster. The conversion is not factory and very unique. The recoil shield has a plate attached similar to some of the Manhattan percussion pistols. I would guess this was done to prevent the cartridges from falling out of the cylinder if the pistol was pointed upward. The pistol and holster really have a great Cowboy look !
