    COLT SINGLE ACTION REVOLVER - Serial number 80937, circa 1882. 5 ½" barrel in .45 calibre. Mechanically functional with two-piece steer head carved ivory grips. Blue and case hardened finish. Accompanying this lot is a brown leather belt and holster.

    Condition: Original barrel, cylinder, hammer and base pin replaced with later production. Factory original parts. Entire revolver professionally refinished. 80% re-blue and about 50% re-case color remains. Dovetail front sight added to barrel. This is an excellent, pit free, sharp edged and attractive revolver. The steer head ivory grips fit like a glove and have a great patina. An escutcheon of what appears to be silver with a pearl inset is evident on the face of the steer near his left ear. Brown two loop, tooled holster is untrimmed, soft and supple. Cartridge belt doesn't match holster.
