Colt Single Action Army Cavalry Model (Serial #18xxx) shipped March 18, 1875. This is one of 108 guns of which 104 were government contract and 4 were civilian (pps, 5, 6, A STUDY OF THE COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER, by Graham, Kopec and Moore, 1976). All markings are correct. On the top of the barrel at the frame (over the "U.S.A." of the address) and on the left side of the frame (over the "U.S.") there are some scratches or dents, detracting slightly from the overall condition, but the gun is tight and in fine working condition. Such marks have been observed on other military guns when someone attempted to remove ownership ties to the U.S. Government. The pistol has virtually no original finish, being of a light, non-pitted patina. Grips are in good condition with no serious wear or marks. We'll also consider trade for Winchester Model 71's. We can take VISA or MasterCard for an additional 2% fee.
