I am interested in a 2nd generation Colt 1862 Pocket Police revolver with a 6.5" barrel. I have only been able to find them with the 5.5" barrel. Does anyone know if Colt produced their 2nd generation revolvers with a 6.5'' barrel? (I know Uberti makes a reproduction with a 6.5" barrel). Thank you.
They also intended to produce a line in stainless but sales didn't pan out so they only made the 44 Army and 36 Navy in stainless.
CVA produced these guns in 5 1/2" and I have what I believe to be an
Uberti stainless sample in 5 1/2".
Soon after, I bought the Uberti ss, Pocket Police display model off the wall.
Colt was still in Hartford at the time and their salesperson knew as much about guns as I do about nuclear fission.
Their reply was the set was made for display only but accepted a return.
The replacement gun problem was fixed but the rest wasn't.
The box of junk was sold shortly thereafter.
