A survey of Australian provenanced Colt percussion firearms

Australian collector and researcher of Australian Colt firearms, John McLean, is currently collecting data for a forthcoming publication, Australian Heritage Colt Percussion Firearms.

This work will be the first comprehensive undertaking to record those early Colt and Colt Brevete firearms that have identifiable Australia provenance, and will provide a much-needed reference work for the arms collector and historian alike.

McLean is seeking serial numbers, details and any known provenance of Australian percussion Colts, or parts thereof, held in private collections.

A PDF survey form has been provided for those who feel they may be able to offer details of items held in their collections. All personal details are private and confidential, and completed forms are to be mailed directly to the author.

There has been little new research on Australian colonial firearms for several decades, and we encourage all Australasian collectors who can assist to make contact with McLean via the downloadable form.
