Description:

Offered here is a desirable ejectorless variation of the Colt Model 1877 Lightning revolver as manufactured in 1893. The barrel is stamped with the caliber designation on the left side and the two-line Hartford address on top. The left side of the frame has the three-line patent dates marking followed by a circled Rampant Colt. Matching serial numbers are on the frame, trigger guard and back strap. The right grip panel is numbered 89?, clearly not the serial number (944458) of revolver. Includes period (no visible number) Colt Model 1877 picture box featuring end labels correctly listing caliber, barrel length and "without ejector."

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 95% plus original nickel finish with an area of loss on the trigger guard and very scattered flaking. 85% original niter blue remains on the hammer, trigger and screw heads .The replacement grips are very fine with some high edge wear, otherwise crisp checkering overall. Mechanically excellent. The box is good with repairable corners, a couple missing interior side inserts and retaining most of the labels.
