What's up brother, I love your show. Okay, I have an 1849 Colt Pocket Pistol that was in Grandma's Closet for years. We have tried to contact Colt to get more info on this pistol, however, we were told that the records from this pistol were burned in a fire of some sort. Anyway, it is great condition, and as you can see appears to be a complete set. All the numbers on the pistol match, and are as follows; COLT'S PATENT No. 49181. It also has a Well's Fargo type wagon on the cylinder. We have tried to come up with more info, but have come up short. I do believe it is a .31 Cal. I have been told it was valued between the ranges of $2,000.00 - $20,000.00. I highly doubt this pistol is worth $20,000.00, but that number was given by a small town gunsmith in Idaho. I was just hoping you guys would
know more about the history, and value of the firearm. I love the Old West, and would love to know if this pistol is from that type of era. If there is more info you guys need from me, I will be happy to provide whatever I can. Thanks again, you guys rock.
If you guys ever find yourself in Idaho, let me know, I think I might know some pretty awsome farm picks in the area of Vale, Oregon which is on the border of Idaho.
