"COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER. SN 101094. Cal. 22. Nickel finish with 6" stepped, tapered rnd bbl, sleeve front sight, 3-line patent dates and rampant Colt in a circle on left side of frame. Left front web of trigger guard has "45 CAL". Fitted with rampant Colt hard rubber grips. Cylinder was converted by removing the front 7/16" and press fitting it over the bbl extension. Remainder of cylinder is 1-3/16" with sub-caliber inserts in the chambers. Cylinder is numbered to the frame. Hammer was converted by plugging the orig frame firing pin hole and altering the plug to accommodate the rimfire firing pin which had been altered from the original center fire pin. Ejector rod housing was slightly altered to fit over the step on the bbl. Right side of front strap, under grip, is stamped "E.H.K." and inside grips have a variety of numbers & initials, none of which appear relevant to this revolver. Altogether a most unusual conversion that seems to function well. CONDITION: About fine. Bbl & frame are in the "white" with the bbl never having been finished and the frame cleaned metal. Trigger guard & back strap retain about all of their orig nickel finish. Cylinder is also a cleaned metal gray finish. Hammer is not solid in safety notch, otherwise mechanics are fine, brilliant shiny bore. Grips are sound and show moderate wear. 4-33842 JR320 (1,000-2,000)"
