"COLT MODEL 1860 MARTIALLY MARKED ARMY CUTAWAY PERCUSSION REVOLVER. SN 11474. Cal. 44. Probably altered at Springfield Arsenal as this Colt is a full martially marked specimen. It has a partially legible cartouche on left side of grip and small inspector initials on various parts. Cut away consists of a 1-1/8" section from left side of bbl exposing the bore, a 7/8" x 1/8" slot on bbl lug exposing rack & pinion rammer workings, one complete chamber exposed, entire left recoil shield milled flush with side of frame with eight 1/8" cuts to expose entire internal workings. It has a milled recess on frame below cylinder to expose cylinder stop (lock bolt) from both sides. It has a 1" slot on each side of frame above trigger guard exposing lock bolt & spring working arrangement. Top of left side of grip at juncture of frame & backstrap is cut away to expose roller action of hammer on spring making it a very complete cutaway. This is a standard 60 Army with 7-7/8" bbl, apparently recrowned to this length, with 4-screw frame having a flat head hammer screw and extended stock screws. It has brass trigger guard with iron backstrap & 1-pc walnut grip with a partially visible cartouche. Bottom of bbl lug has an "S" in a circle on flat above serial number. No indication what this is for and it has never previously been encountered by this cataloger. CONDITION: Fine, all matching including wedge.  Bbl, cylinder & backstrap retain a smooth even medium brown patina & frame retains traces of orig case colors.  Trigger guard has a few scratches on front end & grip is sound with moderate wear and retains a fine hand worn patina.  Mechanics are fine, strong bore with moderate pitting.  This must have been an issued & used piece before it was cut away. On the frame just forward of the serial number is the letter “S” in a circle. The letter “S” stands for Sedgeley. Mr. Sedgeley , in the early part of the 20th Century, was one of the foremost gun restorers in North America and frequently marked items he worked on. This piece is therefore something that Mr. Sedgeley worked on or produced. 4-32318 JR354 (6,000-10,000)"
