This is a very nice, re-nickeled Colt Single Action Bisley revolver made about 1910 (serial #316xxx), in .38 WCF. The action is perfect, and four clicks are all prominent. All serial numbers are clear and matching. Loading gate and frame have the same assembly numbers. The markings have been buffed, but are all still visible, with barrel address correct for the 4 and 3/4 inch barrel. The right grip has been very well mended at the front lower corner. The bore has small spots of pitting, but strong rifling.
Accompanying the Colt is a vintage George Lawrence cartridge belt and carved holster, as pictured. (The cartridges are for display only.) The cartridge loops on this belt are made to be tightened when the leather stretches. A small rawhide lace secures the end of the loop strap, seen on the front and back near the holster in the pictures. This belt and holster are in extremely good condition, not cracked and pliable.
