    Yes it does, it does need the spring replace on the pawl
    It works but you need to hold it so the pawl goes in place and rotates the cylinder. I have never shot it. My dad got in his gun shop in 1966. It has not been shot in all that time.

    According to Colts website it is a 36 cal. model 1849 pocket colt manufactured in 1864.

    Just a bump for the cause.

    Proofhouse puts your 1849 Pocket Model as being made in 1864. See link below.

    http://proofhouse.com/colt/index.html

    Good luck with your sale - it's an interesting one and it would be nice to know if it is factory plated or plated later on in life. The stampings appear to be pretty crisp, etc. so I wouldn't be surprised if it was factory plated.

    Added some new pictures, there were questions on barrel length, it is 6 inches.
    It is clearly a 31cal.
