.45 Colt, 5.5" barrel, S/N 100463 (mfg. ca 1883). Blued and color case hardened finish, varnished walnut grip. Single action, 6-shot revolver. One-line Hartford barrel address, thee-line and three-date patent marking on frame, triggerguard marked 45 CAL. All visible numbers match with cylinder numbered 0463. Contained in a modern, compartmentalized case with reproduction label and empty reproduction ammunition boxes.
Very good. Retains some thinning blue in protected areas with the balance mostly a plum patina showing scattered minor surface oxidation and discoloration. All markings crisp, bottom of barrel with numerous impact marks, particularly near the cylinder pin. Mechanically functional, but needs some minor attention as the cylinder does not completely index and lock up as it should unless the hammer is cocked briskly. Bore very good with some scattered oxidation and minor pitting. Grip with wear, some original varnish and scattered minor marks and dings. Case very good.
