serial #315991, 32 WCF, 5 1/2? barrel with a very good bore which shows evident rifling but with scattered oxidation and scattered pitting. The barrel, ejector rod and cylinder shows some generous trace original blue but are primarily a faded plum brown and pewter patina, also with the minor scattered handling marks one would expect from the years on a field-used arm. The frame is a mottled mix of fading silver and gray case-hardening with some generous colors in the pinched portion below the barrel, the hammer showing some generous trace case colors as well. The straps and guard have toned to a smooth plum brown patina showing some minor impact marks on the butt. The revolver wears a pair of checkered hard rubber Rampant Colt grips which are un-numbered but fit rather well, the metal being slightly proud at the butt. Numbers are matching on frame, triggerguard and backstrap and the gun times and locks up properly. An honest and still attractive Single Action Army which left the blue dome in 1910, that likely could still be taken to the range and enjoyed. (38737-174) {C&R} [Dr. Louis C. March Jr. Collection] (2000/3000) SOLD FOR $1,840.00
