"COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER. SN 67991. Cal. 45 Colt. Early civilian model with 7-1/2" bbl, slightly altered front sight with 1-line block letter address. It has 3-line patent dates and caliber stamped on left front web of trigger guard and is fitted with 1-pc walnut grip. It has third type ejection rod housing with half moon ejector rod head which may be an old replacement. Base pin is orig with dimpled ends. This revolver is rather scarce having been made in a period when most of Colt's single action production was directed toward filling military contracts. CONDITION: Good to very good. No orig finish remains being a fairly even medium to dark blue/brown patina with scattered fine pitting especially in bottom gullets of frame. Hammer is a modern replacement as are two or three of screws. Grip shows heavy wear with chipped toes and a series of notches on left heel and retains a dark hand worn patina. Hammer will not hold in safety notch, otherwise mechanics are fine, strong dark bore. Would make an outstanding cowboy action shooter. 4-59723 JR204 (2,000-3,500)"
