Congratulations, we are delighted to offer this unique and hard to find accessory. You are offerding on a historical vintage powder flask for a Colt Paterson Revolver. This brass flask is very well made and is in excellent condition, no dents, no cracks, no damage found. The caps at the top and bottom are removable once the screws are removed. Five (5) spring loaded screw off for adjustment spouts on top cap and cylinder chamber. Spouts, when depressed into a five shot revolver cylinder dispense the equal amounts of powder simultaneously into the five chambers.
Colt Paterson Pistol brass flask, measures 6 inches long with a 1 7/8 diameter. The powder flask has a nice older patina on the brass, no cleaning has been done as that will be up to the collector of this wonderful piece. Marking stamped on the bottom '' EUROMANUFACTURE MADE IN ITALY”. No other noted markings. Overall, really good shape.
Based on research and the noted stamp, most likely the flask may be considered to be an authentic older copy reproduction piece. We are not completely sure. However, there is still a powder residue inside the cylinder and the internal spout parts have powder on them.
We want to stress that this item is “most likely” a quality Replica of an item likely used in the 1800's. We felt this had potential value to collectors of the old firearms accessories. We do not typically sell replica items and want you to be sure that as a buyer or buyer you know that. It is in very nice condition with only a minimal amount of wear to the brass. We have done our best to describe a vintage or antique item as best as possible. However since the item IS either a replica, antique or at best vintage, due to the age, it is sold in "as is" condition. Please examine the pictures and contact us with any questions, to request additional pictures. Please realize this when offerding as there are no returns or refunds, offer accordingly. SOLD AS IS.
