Description

#4962 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 to 5-1/2” lengths, re-assembled (with no regard to matching parts), and refurbished in the late 1890s to replace the ineffective 38COLT D/A models. Frame number is in the 133XXX range (1890) and thus being Rinaldo Carr inspected, remainder numbers are all mixed. VG+ bore, about a 7 on a scale of 10. Fine tight smooth action with all the clicks on the hammer and a crisp lock-up. The smooth even dark grayish blue metal is very fine condition with no pitting at all and crisp edges; some cloudy swirls on frame, and faded blue tinge on barrel, ejector housing, straps, and cylinder. VG markings and thin grey patina over most of the surface. Original one-piece walnut grips have no catouche remaining and are probably original grips off of a Civilian gun as they have “BEN” neatly incised on the right grip …and while fitting well, they do not fit perfect; otherwise no serious damage. The barrel, cylinder, and straps are all DFC inspected, and as is proper, they are mixed numbers. 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 military marked ones, that buyers should always take the possibility of some degree of restoration into consideration. Handsome Artillery in VG++ condition. $3495
