These gun cases are reproductions of cases that were manufactured by Colt contract suppliers in the 1850's, 60's and 70's. The dimensions of the cases, the mahogany wood, and the oil finish, are all copied from cases that I have researched over the past 3 years. I have also duplicated the lock, hinges, lock plate, and even the style of inletting (I have left out the scribe marks at the hinges, but can add them if you desire an exact copy). Cloth colors are a match of the original Colt colors. You will also see a reproduction of the instruction label that Colt placed in each of its cases. The overall construction of the case is better than the originals (with a pine veneer plywood bottom instead of the scrap pine used in the 1800's). Original cases of this type run in the $1000-$1500 range in fair condition, if you can find them at all. These are a high quality alternative. I also make cases for other guns of the period on a special order basis.
