COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER SN 50172. Cal. 45 Colt. HENRY NETTLETON INSPECTED Nickel finish with 7-1/2” bbl, altered & shortened front sight, with block letter address. Roll mark is slightly off center to the right. Frame has crisp 3-line patent dates and a “US” on left side of frame. Frame & trigger guard serial numbers are accompanied by Nettleton’s “H.N.” initials. They are also found on cylinder, left side of hammer, top of backstrap and bottom right edge of grip. It has second type ejector rod housing with bull’s eye ejector rod head & a replacement base pin without dimples in the end. It has 1-pc grip with a clear “1878” date and the partially obliterated cartouche of Capt. John E. Greer “JEG” on the left side with a worn & illegible cartouche on right side. Bottom right edge of grip has probably what is a museum number in white paint “49-AC”. Consignor states that “AC” stands for Arnold Chernoff, a renown, high-profile gun dealer from years past. Page 45 of Colt Cavalry & Artillery Revolvers . . . a Continuing Study, Kopec & Fenn, has a listing of nickel plated & buy-back Nettleton inspected revolvers, which listing contains the number “50170”, only two numbers from this revolver. It also states that because of the close number sequence of these nickel plated buy-backs that they were probably packed in their orig shipping cartons when re-purchased by Colt giving rise to premise that this revolver, #50172, was in same container as #50170. CONDITION: Fine, all matching except bbl which is unnumbered. Bbl retains 65-75% strong orig nickel with flaking & wear on both sides from muzzle with some of flaked areas a dark patina. Frame retains most of its strong orig nickel with a few flaked spots and some light pitting on hammer. Backstrap & trigger guard retain about 90% orig nickel with some flaking & spotting. Grip, with cartouches as noted, shows heavy wear on left edge with a hand worn patina. Crisp mechanics, strong bright bore with scattered pitting. 4-32300 JR492 (5,000-10,000)
