"COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER. SN 140100. Cal. 476. Very rare revolver in an extremely rare caliber. According to Colt Peacemaker British Model, Cochran, on pp. 83-84 he shows that there were only 45 revolvers produced in this caliber & configuration of the total of 1,255 produced with this bbl address in this bbl length and of that total only 161 were produced in this caliber in both bbl lengths, again, of which only 45 were in 7-1/2". This revolver has 7-1/2" bbl with very thick and extra tall front sight and 2-1/2" Pall Mall London address. Left side of bbl has the caliber marking. Left side of frame has 2-line patent dates and rampant Colt in a circle. Top strap has an added fixed rear sight in a dovetail toward the rear and it is fitted with very nicely figured 1-pc walnut grip. Grip appears to have had a flaw near the heel and was factory repaired prior to finishing. Bottom of bbl and in the flutes have tiny British proofs and has the number "400" on bottom of bbl, under the base pin. Serial number would indicate that this revolver was produced in 1891, however it has a concave shaped firing pin that, according to Mr. Chochran" was not in use until 1905. It has the correct hammer with ten diagonal lines which was in use until about 1899. CONDITION: Fine, all matching including grip.  Cylinder is properly unnumbered.  Bbl retains about 80% orig blue, somewhat thinned on left side, silver at muzzle.  Frame retains traces of case colors in the most sheltered areas being mostly a silver patina.  Hammer retains faded case colors, dark on back edge.  Cylinder retains thin blue in the flutes, otherwise is a cleaned silver metal colors.  Grip frame retains blue in the most sheltered areas being mostly a cleaned metal color.  Grip shows moderate to heavy edge wear with a non-factory repair at left heel and has nicks, dings & scratches and retains traces of orig varnish, being mostly a light hand worn patina.  Mechanics are crisp, bright shiny bore. 4-33833 JR322 (7,000-10,000)"
