    1849s are 5 shot, are they not?

    Some were 5 shot and some were 6 shot. I think all of the 1848's were 5 shot, I may be wrong, I am certainly not an expert.

    All 1848's were 5 shot the 1849's were made in both 5 and 6 shot. Some 49's were made without loading leavers called the Wells Fargo Model.
    I guess Colt felt Wells Fargo agents were good shots and didn't need to reload.
