Per Colt, this revolver was manufactured in 1896, but it retains the "COLT/Rampant Colt/1892" emblem on the grips which have matching assembly numbers. Thus, the revolver may have been manufacture prior to the shift from the Model 1892 to the Model 1896 or during a transitional period during which the factory used their remaining "1892" grips. It has the standard markings and features. Includes a leather flap holster with what appears to be "abe/K87" or something similar marked inside the flap. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Very fine with 85% plus of the original high polish blue finish remaining, fading mainly on the grip straps and trigger guard, some minor edge wear, small spots of light oxidation, thin cylinder drag lines, and general minor wear. The grips are also very fine and have crisp checkering and markings and light age and storage related wear. Mechanically excellent. The holster is very good with moderate rub wear.
