Colt M1855 Revolving Percussion Rifle Non Firing 19-1188
The Colt M1855 Revolving Percussion Rifle was a cap-and-ball repeating rifle based on the system used so successfully by Colt for their pistols of the period. This military rifle was not produced in great numbers (about 9,00 pieces between 1856 and 1864) but it saw service in the Civil War and in the Indian Wars that followed. The gun was produced in .44 and .56 calibers and the revolving cylinder would hold 6 cartridges for the .44 caliber model and 5 shots in the case of the .56 model. This non-firing version clearly demonstrates the revolving cylinder system.
