    Description

    Colt SAA Revolver. .44 Rimfire Series #1252. The gun is accompanied by a factory letter from 1967 which states it was "one of fifty similar models sold and shipped to the H & D Folsom Arms Company, on November 1, 1877. The letter states neither the barrel length nor finish. The gun retains 100% of what we believe to be a period renickle finish. All markings excellent and sharp. mechanically perfect and excellent bore. The gun has what we believe to be the original 7 1/2" barrel with standard later markings. 1871 and 1872 patent dates on left side of the frame with the cylinder bearing the correct serial number. The period ivory grips which exhibit a rich mellow patina and surface age cracks are delicately carved with scrollwork and a Mexican eagle on the left side, with identical scrollwork and a horseman brandishing a pistol, chasing a buffalo, on the right side. A very rare Colt with total production of only 1800 guns. This being a most impressive example with great western flavor.
