22. Colt Officers Model Target Double Action Revolver

Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #27348, 22 LR, 6" barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces on this third issue revolver retain about 99% original blue, the only appreciable loss being a series of light abrasions across the matted surface of the topstrap, which looks like it came in contact with the coiled steel portion of the original Colt boar bristle cleaning brushes, it certainly could easily be toned down by someone who knew their business. The bright-polished sides of the hammer remain brilliant with only some very sparse, very light remnants of oxidation staining. There is a tiny bit of wear on the lower front of the butt and the cylinder turn ring is so light it does not breech the blue. The arm is equipped with a Patridge front sight and square notch rear. The checkered walnut grips with silver Rampant Colt medallions rate excellent to as-new, they are un-numbered and fit precisely. The arm rides in its original purple-tone, hinge-top box, serial numbered to the gun on its underside. The box rates excellent with "Target" and "Patridge Sight" surcharges above the blue end label. An absolutely super Officers Model Target which saw very little, very careful use. (38659-53) {C&R} (1500/2000) SOLD FOR $3,162.50
