Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #88396, 45 Colt, 7 1/2'' barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces on this lovely revolver retain about 97 to near 98% original nickel finish, the loss is due primarily to some light fading or flaking on the bottom of butt and around the root of the triggerguard with very light fading on the frontstrap and the top the backstrap; the loss appears due to flaking, due to poor metal preparation, rather than actual wear from use. There is some very light flaking at the front sight and a light turn ring present, with perhaps the widely scattered spot of extremely light surface oxidation here or there. All of the screws retain lovely vibrant fire blue, as does the base pin, it drifting only slightly. The checkered hard rubber Rampant Colt and Eagle grips rate excellent and are pencil-numbered to the gun on their interior. The gun times perfectly and locks up smartly and appears very much unfired, the face of the cylinder and forcing cone both being immaculate. The included factory letter verifies the configuration and shows shipment to Schoverling Daly & Gales of New York in March 1883. A very lovely 1883-manufactured nickel cavalry-length Colt. (38751-47) {ANTIQUE} (8000/12,000) Sold For 12075.00
