    Great history research on the age of the item, the ID, the demographics of people movement, etc... Yes that corridor was an entry point into CA at the time. For persons starting from the AZ, NM, TX direction . Or starting from Mexico. Modern freeways and roads go other ways. But at one time, yes, that area was a travel corridor leading into CA . Like for the gold rush , for military entering, etc... And yes it's totally conceivable there was trading going on, stopping/camping at various likely spots.

    I know the gun was found on totally legit public land. But as you know, there's a nearby museum (your gun wasn't found on *their* land, .... I know). But if you want to get that gun on display in there, to donate, let me know. I docent at another museum that .... has a kinship with that museum. I can fish around and pose it as a "hypothetical" and see what they say. Ie.: "what if a person found an 1860 gun on the hiking trail/creek off yonder that direction. Could it get on display?" And we'd see what they say. But if you're prefer it on your own mantle place , that's understandable.

    Have you been in that little museum before ?
    Thanks so much! If I find a really good site I will definitely invite you! I have never been to that museum before, I might want to donate it to that museum.

    I used it for most of the time and it worked great! But I found it with my other detector.

    Great find!! Two things. You might want to consider electrolysis to clean it up and stabilize it ASAP. The Colt address/writing on top of the barrel may be visible under the rust. The serial number should be visible stamped in the brass in front of the trigger guard near the screw and near the screw that joins the trigger guard and backstrap. can you post close ups of these areas? If the numbers match, it's likely an untampered-with specimen. You can also spend some $ and get Colt to send you a letter that will tell you where the revolver was shipped and how it was finished as it left the factory (if they have the records after the fire years ago). It's worth a call to the Colt historian's office to see if your SN falls within the numbers whose records are still available. Again, the letter will cost some real $, but it's worth the investment for display or selling purposes to document the find and get a look at the beginning of your Colt's journey west.
    Thanks! I put a picture of the serial number on my original post, and the serial number does match up. I will definitely email them!
