Colt 1855 Revolving Six Shot Rifle

Approximately 9,310 examples of this model were manufactured circa 1856 to 1864 at the Hartford factory. They came with a six shot fluted cylinder for the .44 caliber. The barrel address on the top-strap reads “COLT’S PT. / 1856 and ADDRESS COL. COLT/HARTFORD CT. U.S.A.”.

The round barrels with semi-octagonal breech come in many lengths including 21, 24, 27, 31, 31-3/16, 31-5/16, 37-5/16 and 37-1/2 inches.

Metal parts are blued with the hammer and lever case-colored. The walnut stocks are oiled stained. Some barrels have a socket for an angular bayonet and some have a socket for a saber bayonet. Some are U.S. marked and some are not marked. There are also variations with regards to trigger-guards, sights, frames, barrel lengths, bayonets and caliber.
