"COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER. SN 40998. Cal. 22 LR. Unusual conversion with 6-5/8" tapered rnd bbl, dovetail front sight with the top strap milled for a rear sight, which is missing. Frame has 3-line patent dates and is missing its grip. Conversion is quite unusual with a 5/8" extension into the cylinder opening and the cylinder reduced to about 1" with sleeved chambers and a long cylinder bushing spindle on the front. The partial serial number is visible on the cylinder which indicates this is the orig cylinder for the revolver before it was converted. CONDITION: Fair to good. No orig finish remains being a medium gray patina overall. Hammer will not hold in any notch but indexes the cylinder fine, an inexpensive repair. Bore is bright with fine pitting near the forcing cone. 4-33849 (1,000-2,000)"
