A Guide To The Proper Accoutrements
$15.00

A Guide To The Proper Accoutrements For Hartford Produced Percussion Colt Revolvers by Fred Sweeney An important, but little researched area of Colt collecting concerns the correct accessories for percussion Colt revolvers. In fact, over 90% of the cased Colts observed have the wrong accoutrements accompanying them.

Now, in a concise, compact book (only 53 pages) which is filled with crystal clear photos, you can select the proper accessories every time. You'll learn about bullet moulds, cartridge packets, nipple wrenches, flasks, cap tins and much more. For hands-free reference work, the book has a spiral binding so it will lay open flat to any page.

Each major model percussion Colt (1849 Pocket, 1851 Navy, 1860 Army, etc.) has its own chapter for quick and easy referral. For instance, if you want to know which is the correct Colt cartridge packet for your 1862 Police, simply turn to that chapter. If this sounds like a missing link in your Colt library, then by all means order now. It's guaranteed to please with a 10 day return privilege. (Cat. #2268)...$15.00
