Colt Factory Engraved Single Action Army .45 LC (C12732)

Colt Factory Engraved Single Action Army .45 LC Caliber Pistol. Factory Engraved Colt Single Army Action made in 1929. Near mint factory engraved Colt Single Action Army. Gun has 99% of the original factory blue and bright case colors on the frame. This is a Wilbur Glahn engraved gun and comes with a factory letter. It initially left the factory in October of 1929 and was shipped to Alker-Donovan Company in New Orleans, La. It was returned to have the grips changed out and was then shipped to B.H. Dyas Company in Los Angeles, Ca. It was once again returned and switched out with pearl grips before finally being shipped to E.S. Sporting Good in Austin, Texas. On one of these returns, the barrel was changed from a 5 ½” to a 4 ¾”. Or there was an error in the factory ledger that recorded this gun as 5 ½” when it was originally 4 ¾”. Typically, when a gun goes back to the factory, this indicated it to be a show gun. This is possible, or this was a gun that was hard to sell due to the cost and the great depression. This gun is all factory original. There has been no refinishing whatsoever. Grips are beautiful pearl carved steer heads. Absolute all original factory engraved Single Action shipped to Texas!
