I recently bought this mold to replace an original in my display box that houses my original 1849 Colt Pocket model. I ordered over the phone and the person was very helpful and knowledgable. I asked the length, and was told it was indeed exactly 5 in. long, and lo and behold it fit my case perfectly. Thanks DGW for the FAST service too. I received it in THREE days! As usual, I'm very happy with my purchase, and will continue to buy from DGW.
