serial #44102, 45 Colt, 6" barrel with an about very good bore showing some scattered patches of light pitting and strong rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this revolver retain about 60% arsenal quality blue showing high edge wear, areas toning to a gray-brown patina, some spots of tiny pinprick pitting, small dings and scattered freckling. The trigger, back of the hammer and some of the screw heads still show some strong fire blue. This revolver likely went through arsenal refurbishment as the metal surfaces show evidence of light buffing and the barrel address and "U.S." on the right side frame are rather soft. The black checkered hard rubber grips are un-numbered but fit the frame quite well and remain in near excellent condition showing just a few small dings and handling marks. The inspector marks are all still very clear with "R.A.C" on the left side frame, triggerguard and rear of cylinder and "J.T.T." on right side frame. The loading gate is matching the frame but the cylinder is numbered "6544". Despite the mismatched cylinder the mechanism functions very well in single and double action with excellent timing and lockup showing just a hint of play. A solid example of these distinctive-looking martial revolvers. (138737-481) {C&R} [Dr. Louis C. March Jr. Collection] (1000/1500) SOLD FOR $920.00
