Description:

Manufactured in 1907 with the Bisley Model and Colt Frontier Six Shooter markings on the left side of the barrel, the two-line address on top, two-line patent dates and circled Rampant Colt on the left of the frame, and matching numbers on the frame, trigger guard, back strap, and grips. It has standard features including checkered hard rubber grips with Rampant Colts at the tops. Revolvers such as this one would have been trusted by those from all walks of life as a last line of protection in an era when much of the American west was still very much untamed.

Rating Definition:

Very good, retains strong traces of the original blue and casehardened finishes in sheltered areas with the balance mostly a smooth grey patina speckled with brown. It certainly has the look of a working gun that was trusted for many years. The very good replacement grips show a mild even wear that only come from years of use. Mechanically excellent. A Single Action Army with the "been there, done that" look!
