C. Mason Revolver – 1860 Army Nickel Finish
With patents for the conversion of percussion revolvers, Colt® employees Charles Richards and William Mason cut off the cap-and-ball cylinders at the back and installed a conversion ring to accept cartridges. These conversion revolvers were favorites then and are enjoying popularity again as favorite reproductions. The Army version of the C. Mason revolvers features a steel backstrap and triggerguard, round barrel with front blade sight, and a larger-size Army grip. C. Mason models feature a forged steel frame, nickel finish parts, modern ejector rod, and hammer with notched rear sight. Requires an FFL dealer to ship.
