Description:

Manufactured in 1893 with the standard one-line address on top of the barrel, "COLT FRONTIER SIX SHOOTER" on the left and two-line patent dates and circled Rampant Colt on the left of the frame. Matching serial numbers on the frame, trigger guard, and back strap and assembly number "214" on the loading gate. Fitted with a set of attractive smooth antique ivory grips numbered to the revolver. Consignor notes that the revolver letters as shipped to Laredo, Texas, but we cannot verify at time of description.

Rating Definition:

Good, retains traces of the original blue finish in sheltered areas with the balance mostly a smooth grey patina with a few scattered patches of light surface pitting. The grips are very good showing an attractive aged color and a few hairline age cracks in the butts. Lock up and timing need adjustment, otherwise mechanically fine. This Colt Single Action Army has a lot of Old West character!
