Description:

Developed as a combination of the Mark V Trooper frame and the Python barrel, the Colt Boa was manufactured only in 1985 as a Lew Horton Distributing limited edition, with a total run of only 1,200, and only 600 in this configuration, making it among the rarest of the production model Colt "snake" double actions. The included factory letter lists this revolver as having a 6 inch barrel chambered in .357 Magnum with "Royal Blue" finish and checkered rosewood stocks when shipped to Lew Horton Distributing Co. in Southboro, Massachusetts on March 8, 1985. Includes original Colt "wood grain" box.

Rating Definition:

Excellent overall retaining 99% plus original blue finish with limited handling marks, a faint cylinder drag line, and crisp grip checkering. Mechanically excellent. Box is fine with storage and handling marks and wear.
