Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection
This Colt Model 1860 Army revolver was made as a percussion and later altered to metallic cartridge by the Thuer conversion. The cylinder is loaded from the front end. Manfactured ca. 1869-1872, about 5,000 were made, including the Colt Models 1849 Pocket, 1851 Navy, 1860 Army, 1861 Navy, 1862 Police and 1862 Pocket Navy.
The Thuer conversion revolvers were the first Colts chambered for metallic cartridges. They were designed so that cylinders for percussion caps could also be used. This conversion of Colt revolvers was to avoid infringement on a patent controlled by Smith & Wesson for their revolver cylinders bored end- to- end so that metallic cartridges could be used.
record indicates there is one, but not listed
written record lists model as Navy, not Army (?)
