I have recently become very interested in Civil War firearms and had a question regarding Confederate 1860 model Colt Army Pistols.  Is it true that Colt actually made an 1860 with a brass frame, or was that only done by southern companies copying the Connecticut produced Colts of the north?  I've heard differing stories about the lack of steel in the south at the time...but why would that matter to Colt...with a northern production plant?  Thanks for any information.
