I own a Colt 1860 Richards 44 Cal center fire.this gun bears serial number 1913xx.According to records,it was made in 1870/71,at a time when 60 cap and balls were still in production.Is it possible to know whether it was issued as a cap and ball and later submitted for conversion,or issued as it is now?
The Richards conversion of the Colt 1860 Army was made c. 1873-78 with a total production of about 9,000. Serial numbering ran in two ranges, one of which was within the Model 1860 Army sequence from 167,000 to 200,614. The Richards conversion is a popular early metallic cartridge revolver with collectors and ALL were converted from cap and ball revolvers.
