Description:

Manufactured in 1902, the two-line address and patent dates on top of the barrel in front of the rear sight and "44 Cal." at the breech. The Rampant Colt is marked on the left of the frame and the serial number is on the lower tang. It is fitted with a German silver blade front sight, elevation adjustable notch rear sight, and a Marble's tang mounted peep sight. It is mounted with a lightly bordered slide handle and a smooth straight grip stock with a crescent buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 80% plus of the original blue finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina, primarily on the edges and the muzzle, and some scattered light dings and handling marks. The wood is excellent with some scattered light pressure dents concentrated mostly on the slide handle. Mechanically excellent.
