"COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER. SN 22236. Cal. 45 Colt. Early single action with 4-13/16" bbl, apparently cut from a different length during period of use, with the sight properly relocated. It has 1-line script address with first type ejector rod housing & bull's eye ejector rod head. Left side of frame has 2-line patent dates and it is fitted with 1-pc walnut grip. Hammer is a more modern replacement as is the base pin. This fine old revolver surely would have see frontier service, having been built in 1876 during the time when the majority of Colt's production went to the government. CONDITION: Good to very good, all matching including bbl & cylinder. No orig finish remains with all metal being a dark smooth brown patina, probably having been cleaned many years ago during its period of use. Grip is sound showing moderate to heavy wear with a couple of minor chips and a dark hand worn patina. Hammer is not solid in safety notch, otherwise mechanics are fine, strong dark bore with moderate to heavy pitting. 4-33883 JR325 (2,000-3,000)"
