Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #12346, .36 cal, 4 1/2'' octagon barrel with a mostly bright near excellent bore showing some light pitting at the breech. The barrel of this revolver retains about 60% original bright blue flaking to gray patina throughout and showing a few moderate dings scattered about. The frame shows remnants of older reapplied blue mostly toned to a dark gray patina and the bottom edge where it meets the barrel shows an old weld repair. The cylinder, hammer and loading lever are a mottled gray patina and the cylinder retains a nice stagecoach scene. The New York barrel address and ''COLTS / PATENT'' on the frame are still very clear. The backstrap and triggerguard have been lightly cleaned to goldenrod showing some small scattered dings and strong markings. The smooth one-piece walnut grip has been renumbered in pencil to match, still with a faint illegible ink number and remains in very good condition as refinished showing a number of notches on the left bottom edge, small dings and handling marks. The remaining serialized parts are matching; the wedge appears to have been renumbered to match. The action still functions well with solid timing and lockup. A fine example of these interesting Colt percussion revolvers. (139036-13) {ANTIQUE} (1000/1500) Sold For 1150.00
