    ENGRAVED COLT BISLEY MODEL "101 RANCH" SINGLE ACTION REVOLVER - 5 ½" barrel in .45 calibre, Serial # 239435. Revolver engraved in a pattern commensurate with what the collecting fraternity has termed "New York Style". Engraving is well-executed floral scrolls with highlighted background. Coverage of engraving is more profuse than Colt's 'C' grade. Backstrap engraved '101'. Functioning action with pearl inlayed hard rubber Colt logo grips. Accompanied by a brown leather belt and holster rig.

    Condition: Revolver engraving in keeping with period of use. This revolver has seen a lot of use after the engraving was applied. Even though no original finish remains on the metal surfaces, this is still a very attractive revolver. Metal surfaces are a relatively uniform grey color with minor scattered light pitting. Hard rubber grips are inlayed with mother of pearl, ranging in shape from stars, hearts, diamonds, and circles. Inlays are quite well executed and attractive. Brown leather holster is of the two-loop variety. Top loop stamped "Z.T.M." Bottom loop stamped "101". Holster marked "REAL OKLAHOMA BUFFALO". The 3" wide cartridge belt has 25 loops facilitating .45 calibre cartridges. Nine cartridge loops are missing. Tongue has been re-positioned forward. Nickel plated brass buckle is the clipped variety. It is secured to the belt body with a newer piece of leather. Belt and holster are soft and supple. This is no indication this revolver is other than it appears, a genuine 101 Ranch Show revolver. No information is known or implied relative to any individual ownership within the famous 101 Ranch show organization for this revolver.
