Colt may have made a few1860 Armies with brass backstrap and trigger guard, but most were all steel. Any real Colts in Confederate possession were pre-war purchases and indirect "requisitions." Confederate-made "Colts" from one manufacturer had frame components of brass. From another, the trigger guard and backstrap were brass. And the book I looked in mentioned the lack of steel.
