FINE 1876 mfr. Antique COLT Etched Panel NEW LINE .22 Rimfire POCKET Revolver
7-Shot .22 in Nickel & Rosewood!
Here we present an antique Colt New Line .22 Revolver First Model, made in 1876 in Hartford, Connecticut. The New Line was a single action pocket revolver introduced by the Colt’s Patent Fire Arms Manufacturing Company in 1873 and continued through 1877. Two years after the Colt House Revolver, a year after the Colt Open Top, and almost simultaneously alongside the Colt Peacemaker, the Colt New Line was one of the first metallic cartridge, rear-loading revolvers manufactured by Colt. It was designed to be a handy pocket-carry revolver, chambered in .22 rimfire, which was very popular for self-defense in these days.
The revolver features 7 shots of .22 rimfire. Of all the Colt “New Line” revolvers made, the .22 caliber was the only one featuring a 7 shot cylinder. All other calibers utilized a 5-shot cylinder. Patent dates are on the bottom of the barrel.
The overall condition is fine. Original nickel finish. The action is as strong as ever! Bright bore. Fine grips with a nice smooth finish and below average wear. Clear etchings and markings. Here is a neat little revolver that will have a prodigious impact on the collection!
