  • Colt Single Action Army .45 LC caliber revolver. Manufactured in 1926. Barrel length is 5½”. Action works and indexes perfectly. Serial numbers appear on frame and the matching numbers are on the grip straps under the grips. Collectors call these “one number guns”. This change in serial matching is thought to be a more cost effective method by Colt. The action works perfectly and indexes perfectly. Bore is excellent. Gun has approximately 92-94% blue and approximately 70% case colors. Grips are excellent. Very fine pre-war Colt.
Note: This cylinder appears to be original to this revolver as to finish and wear. The cylinder has a tiny number “07” on the rear face. The last two digits of the serial number of the revolver are “03”. This is then a cylinder mismatched to this revolver. Looks really good but mismatched. Reasonably priced for a fine pre-war Single Action.

  • Colt Factory Engraved Single Action Army .45 LC Caliber Revolver. 
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!

  • Colt Single Action Army Artillery Model .45LC caliber revolver. Made in 1891. This is an artillery model single action with correctly mismatched numbers. This gun is in very-fine condition with 85% of the original blue. Very-good case colors on the frame. The grips have been checkered during the period of use. Whoever checkered the grips tried to preserve the “RAC” cartouche and made provisions to do so. They then went over the cartouche to make it deeper. These guns were originally 7½” long barrel that were issued to the cavalry. They were retired, then brought back into service. When they brought them back, they reworked them. This entailed shortening the barrel and refinished all parts and refitting them. No attempt was made to put these guns back with original serial numbers. Very-fine gun.
