Presentation Model 1855 Colt Sidehammer Pocket Revolver

, ,


The Colt Model 1855 Sidehammer Pocket Revolver, made up until 1870, is also known as the Colt Root Revolver after its designer engineer Elisha K. Root (1808–1865). This presentation example is stocked with wood from the Connecticut Oak tree, in which legend has it, the Charter for the Colony of Connecticut was hidden from Governor Andros who intended to confiscate it, in 1687. The then 7-to-8-hundred-year-old tree was felled by a violent storm in 1856.
