.44-40 caliber, 4.75" barrel, S/N 19537 (mfg. ca 1885). Blued finish, checkered hard rubber Rampant Colt logo grips with lanyard ring in butt. Double action, 6-shot blued cylinder revolver. Two-line barrel address, etched barrel panel reads "COLT FRONTIER SIX SHOOTER." Total of 720 .44-40s were made in 1885.
Very good overall. Retains considerable original blue finish with some flaking and light fading. Mechanically excellent, very good bore with strong rifling. Grips very good. This is a very rare 1878, most of the barrels were robbed and placed in SA's. This is an honest and untouched revolver.
