THREE SCARCE FACTORS !!!

CONFIGURATION, QUANTITY, AND SHIP LOCATION... 1893

   COLT FACTORY LETTER

Here we have a COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY, of the BLACK POWDER persuasion, EXHIBITING  scarce qualities. First, it is a 7-1/2 INCH barrel CHAMBERED IN 32/20 CALIBER !!!!!! ALL collectors know it is extremely rare in this configuration, and nearly impossible to find in ALL original condition. Secondly ONLY 2 were shipped, and the third scarcity, it was shipped to Texas. J.C. Petmecky in Austin, on 5/17/1893.

Yes, Serial No. 14933X is a rare find, and will make a collector very happy. It letters exactly as you see it, blue finish and barrel length and caliber. Currently it has about 65% of all the original blue, except it has darkened and some plum underlying colors. the grips are excellent and are the very desirable Eagle Pattern hard rubber. ALL factory applied markings are present and legible. The working action functions correctly, with all the cock stops and cylinder rotation then locking tight. The Eagle grips are very defined and exhibit correct wear.

 

This is a very scarce SAA, with a fine shipping location & quantity. Hard to find, MUCH LESS to Texas!

PRICE $4.950

COLT FRONTIER SIX SHOOTER 44/40...COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY ...with COLT FACTORY LETTER 1890..4-3/4" and EAGLE HARD RUBBER GRIPS...

Serial No. 13175X was shipped to Simmons Hardware on March 21st, 1890, just as you see it. Blue, Hard Rubber, 4-3/4 ", 44/40 in a quantity of 25. Today the blue finish has evolved into a blue/plum patina, untouched and natural after 133 years. There are still miniscule areas of original blue, like alongside the trigger guard bow.The factory applied markings remain clear and sharp: barrel address, frame patents, serial numbers (all matching) and roll die caliber on barrel. Attesting to Colt quality, the mechanical actions, aka. working actions ALL function 100% correctly: hammer notches, cylinder rotation and indexing, releasing to fire etc...NO problems.

In 1890 the Factory was still using the Eagle Pattern hard rubber grips, which in a few years disappeared.

The Eagle grips are in great condition, showing normal to light hand wear, with NO damage. St. Louis was STILL the jumping off point for firearms going to the WEST. No doubt this Colt crossed the Mississippi River and entered into the wild west which was STILL there in 1890. The west was the greatest demand for this Colt product and considering its caliber matched with the 1873 Winchester Rifle/Carbine drove the demand. Eagle gripped Black Powder Colts are scarce today and highly prized.

PRICE $4,450
