  • Colt Single Action Army Texas Provenance .45 caliber revolver. Made in 1895. .45 LC with a 7 ½” barrel. Gun is in excellent condition with 90% of the original nickel. Back strap is marked “R.C. Lowry”. The included factory letter shows shipment in October 1895 to H.R. Morrow through Hibbard Spencer Bartlett & Co. of Chicago, no doubt the Morrow-Thomas Hardware Company of Amarillo, and used Hibbard Spencer Bartlett and Co. as a distributor, and therefore placed the order for the gun through them. Mr. R.C. Lowry, full name “Dr. R.W.C. Lowry”, was a veterinarian in Amarillo, Texas, graduating from the Kansas City Veterinary College in 1905. Mr. H.R. Morrow was the President of the Morrow-Thomas Hardware Company in Amarillo and was also a stockman as he can be located in records of bulls being bred by him. No doubt a wealthy and prolific fellow in the area, it is certain that the two men knew each other. The Colt records indicate the arm shipping with a 5 ½” barrel which is clearly a mistake in the records. The nickel is original and areas of the metal were cleaned on the back strap and trigger guard. The frame has been refinished. The factory letter also indicates stocks as “Ivory wit Carved American Eagle Motif”. There are some impact or tool marks on the left side of the frame and a number of small dings on the underside of the barrel from someone attempting to remove the cylinder base pin, but the gun has a very nice and honest frontier-look and the ivory American eagle grips are very endearing. The gun seems to function well mechanically. A very fine Texas Single Action Army belonging to a veterinarian who loved Amarillo.
