#4963 Colt S/A, 5-1/2”x45COLT, “U.S.” Artillery model

Description

#4963 Colt S/A, 5-1/2”x45COLT, “U.S.” Artillery model with mixed serial numbers, as is correct, as these were dismantled Cavalry revolvers that were later altered in the late 1890s to the 5-1/2” length, then re-assembled (with no regard to matching parts), and refurbished to replace the ineffective 38COLT D/A models. The frame number is in the 139XXX range (1891) and thus being originally a Rinaldo Carr inspected Cavalry, remainding numbers all mixed. VG+ bore, about a 7 on a scale of 10. Fine tight smooth action with all the clicks on the hammer (which is a post-1906 style with the borderless design) and a crisp lock-up. The exterior is mostly a smooth even grey metal with both the barrel and cylinder having a slightly thin blue cast. The metal is very fine with no appreciable pitting. Address and patent markings are somewhat thin, probably weakened during the refurbishing in 1898. Original one-piece walnut grips have no cartouche remaining but no serious damage. Bulls-eye ejector rod head. The barrel, cylinder, and straps are all mixed numbered and all are DFC inspected as is proper for these Artillery reworks . Suffice to say this (…and this is a VERY important fact)…that since many, if not most pre-1900 Single Actions have been restored, enhanced, and/or “juiced-up” to some degree, especially the military marked ones, this always should be considered when determining value. VG++ $3350
