Item Description: Translate description
.44 caliber, 7.5" octagonal-to-round barrel, S/N 12004 (mfg. ca 1852). Blued and color case hardened finish, brass backstrap and triggerguard, one-piece walnut grip. One-line barrel address reads {ADDRESS SAML COLT NEW-YORK CITY}, three-line frame marking reads COLT'S / PATENT / U.S. Cylinder with roll engraved Texas Ranger and Indian fight scene, with MODEL USMR in one panel and the usual COLT'S PATENT mark in the other with the serial number in between. Matching serial numbers throughout, with matching abbreviated numbers on the loading lever, wedge, cylinder arbor and in the gripstrap cut out of the grip. No external sub-inspection marks are present, although one is found on the grip frame under the grip. No cartouches are present on the grip. 

Condition: Good. Retains no finish with an old cleaning that has aged to a dull pewter patina. Markings in metal remain mostly crisp and sharp and were likely freshened, as was the cylinder scene. Mechanically functional, fair bore with moderate pitting along its entire length. Grip sanded with the brass backstrap proud of the wood, no cartouches present. Both sides of the grip with added wood repairs at the leading edges, also showing some bumps and dings.

EST $3000 - 6000
