Description:

Manufactured in 1876 as a Second Model. The left side of the rare 2 3/4 inch barrel has the desirable acid etched panel marked "COLT NEW 22", the top marked with the two-line address, the patent date on the bottom, and the matching serial number on the butt, rear of the cylinder and barrel (41). It is fitted with a pair of checkered hard rubber grips. Includes a leatherette wrapped hard case, cleaning rod, and several .22 RF cartridges.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 80% plus of the original nickel finish with some minor flaking, mostly on the cylinder, revealing a smooth grey patina and some scattered very light pitting. The grips are also very fine with minimal handling evidence and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The case is fine with some scattered minor handling/storage marks.
