    I have attached a photo of what I think is a pocket navy colt, 1861. Can anybody confirm I am close as to its identification? My grandmother gave it to me a few years back and it's been sitting in a frame in my closet ever since. Hope to hear back!

    The cylinder and frame appear to be an 1862 Pocket Navy. Definitely converted to cartridge. Would like to see more pics.

    The barrel appears to be a Pocket Police barrel. That's interesting.

    This was a fairly common conversion during the C&B ~ cartridge change over.

    Nice gun. Do you have any documentation?

    The patent dates are different from most C&B 1862s. It could have been done at the factory.

    Suggest you post this in the Black Powder Forum.

    I don't have any documentation. It is stamped patent 1871/1872 on the frame. 36cal. and a New York address on the barrel. It has a serial number 819#, on the barrel, frame and grip.
