Description:

The Colt Single Action Army is one of the most iconic firearms of the American west, and it, alongside the Winchester Model 1873, are often cited as the "guns that won the west". This example certainly has the look of "been there, done that". The accompanying factory letter confirms the 4 3/4 inch barrel in .45 caliber, and blue finish with type of stocks not listed. The letter also states the revolver was shipped to Roberts, Sanford & Taylor Co. of Sherman, Texas, on August 13, 1902. Matching serial numbers are on the frame, trigger guard, and back strap.

Rating Definition:

Good displaying a classic smooth gray patina from spending a lifetime in the Texas wilds. The grips are good replacements with the right panel well worn, left fine. Mechanically excellent. A Texas shipped Single Action Army revolver that has all the hallmarks of seeing serious action.
