"COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER. SN 111933. Cal. 45 Colt. Blue & case colored finish, 7-1/2" bbl with full front sight and block letter 1-line address. Left side of frame has 3-line patent dates and a small "U.S." and it has 1-pc walnut grip with clear crisp "FH" (Capt. Frank Heath), Ordnance Inspector's cartouche on left side under the date "1884". Right side has a clear & legible "DFC" (David F. Clark), sub-inspector's cartouche. The "DFC" initials appear on bottom left side of grip, bottom front of frame, bottom of bbl and on the cylinder. A tiny "G" appears below the serial number on the trigger guard & back strap. According to Cavalry & Artillery Revolvers...a Continuing study, Kopec & Fenn, this "mystery G" appears during this series and there is no known reason for it or what it indicates. This revolver was part of the 9th Army Contract and was for 2,000 revolvers. These revolvers were all made in the 1880's during the Indian Wars on the frontier and rarely are found with much orig finish. Not only did they see hard frontier service, a majority of them were recalled and reworked to artillery models and refinished. This one, obviously, escaped in orig unaltered condition. CONDITION: Extremely fine plus, all matching.  Bbl retains 98-99% strong glossy orig factory blue with all of its orig feathers by the front sight and with feathers on each side of the ejector rod housing stud.  Ejector rod housing retains 97-98% strong orig blue with only front edge wear and a few minor scratches.  Frame retains about all of its crisp orig case colors with some freckling on left recoil shield, mostly brilliant.  Hammer is equally brilliant, slightly faded on top edge.  Screws are crisp and retain about all of their orig blue.  Cylinder retains about 97% strong orig blue with only sharp edge wear and a light drag line.  Trigger guard retains 97-99% strong orig blue with a few minor scratches on front strap and very slight sharp edge wear on the trigger bow.  Back strap retains 96-98% strong orig blue with some slight thinning toward heel and on the right ear.  Grip is crisp & clean with a very few, very minor handling & storage marks and retains about all of its orig oil finish with its crisp clear cartouches & date.  Timing is slightly off, otherwise mechanics are crisp with brilliant shiny bore, possibly unfired.  This is one of the finest "DFC" cavalry revolvers extant. 4-33367 JR318 (75,000-100,000)"
