Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #41622, 22 LR, 6" barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces on this lovely revolver retain about 98% plus original blue, the loss is due to a few light handling marks or a bit of rub wear here and there, primarily on the sharp edges of the frame and leading edges of the cylinder; the cylinder turn ring does not yet quite breech the blue. The bright-polished sides of the hammer remain brilliant and the face of the trigger is neatly checkered. Features Patridge style front sight and square-notch rear. The checkered walnut silver Rampant Colt medallion grips rate excellent to as-new, they are un-numbered but their fit is precise, the right grip with a very tiny ding at its butt. The revolver comes in its original purple-tone, hinge-top box, numbered to the gun on its underside. The box itself rates very good plus to near excellent with some minor scuffing and a tear at one end of the lid. There is no end label however there is a surcharge on the top mentioning the revolver is equipped with the "embedded head cylinder" (counterbored) for use with high speed and high velocity cartridges. Inside we find Colts "Shooting Suggestions" pamphlet and the test target numbered to the gun, as well as a synopsis of a Connecticut law requiring that people who sell pistols be licensed, it is in a small envelope with the West Hartford Police Department return address. Manufactured in 1936, this example features the heavier roll mark on the left side of the barrel. (38659-17) {C&R} (800/1200) SOLD FOR $1,495.00
