Colt Signature Series BP Revolver

beffabeffa Member Posts: 47 ✭✭
I reposted this here, besides the "Ask The Experts" forum.

I just bought one of these >

.36 cal. Model 1862 Trapper, Revolver, No Loading Lever, 5-Shot
Semi-Fluted Cylinder, 3?-inch Round Barrel, Silver-Plated
Backstrap and Trigger Guard, N.Y. Address, Sam Colt
Signature Engraved on Backstrap. Comes with Brass Ramrod.
Does anyone have a link or info- on how many were made, or a serial number chart telling me when mine was made?

I can only find info- for second generation BP revolvers.

TY

    You can try calling Henry Repeating Arms in Brooklyn, NY. They used to be Colt Blackpowder Firearms Company and made your revolver.

    Good luck. To my knowledge, the production records for Sig Series guns do not exist.

    The Sig Series were made from 1994 to 2002, so it was made in that time frame. If Henry Arms cannot tell the DOM you can still find 3rd Generation (Sig Series) catalogs. You can look through those and see when it was first listed. But, while it may be interesting to know when a particular gun was made, does it really make a difference if it was, say, 1996 or 1999?

    OK, that's a "Signature Series" model F1505, 1862 Pocket Police - Trapper Model. It was made from 1996-2002. The original MSRP was $442.50. I don't have any info as to how many were manufactured.

    I hope this helps.
