Lot # 1 (Sale Order: 2 of 252)
A nickel-plated Colt Firearms M-1877 "Lightening" .38 caliber Double Action Revolver in good condition. A "shopkeeper" model without ejector rod, the finish is about 85%, it has good grips and a good bore, but like so many of these early revolvers the action does not work reliably. This Lightening will work in the double action mode, but not the single action - typical of these finicky revolvers.
Lot # 2 (Sale Order: 3 of 252)
This Mervin & Hubert 44/40 Single Action Revolver looks original, but it might be a period made copy. It is in fair+ condition with a working action, but the break open is sloppy.

Lot # 4 (Sale Order: 5 of 252)
A first generation 1893 production Colt Model 1873 SAA .45 Colt "Peacemaker" Single Action Revolver in good condition.
