This revolver was manufactured in 1929 and is chambered for both .44 Russian and .44 S&W Special cartridges. Estimates list only 506 Single Action Army revolvers manufactured for .44 S&W Special. Prior to the introduction of the .44 Special to the Colt line, only 154 Single Action Army revolvers were manufactured for the .44 Russian cartridge upon which the .44 Special was based. The trigger guard has the Colt factory rework "&" mark on the right side and Colt factory triangle and number "3" on the left side. The revolver wears a set of Colt medallion diamond checkered walnut grips. Matching serial numbers are on the frame, trigger guard and back strap.
Fine. The barrel, ejector housing and grip straps retain 80% original blue finish with thinning to gray on the balance. The unserialized cylinder is refinished and is a mix of blue and gray patina. The frame and hammer retain 60% original case colors. There are a few scattered patches of pitting, heaviest on the left side of the barrel with some cold blue visible in this area. The replacement grips are very fine with crisp checkering.
