7/27/20 - This is an original Colt SAA Model 1873 made for the commercial market in 1894. It is an antique. This particular example has a 5.5" barrel. It is in good condition overall for its age. Most of the finish is worn and the metal is covered in patina. There are small spots of discoloration throughout. The metal is not rusted or pitted. All matching. The action is tight and the timing is excellent. Excellent bore - shiny with strong rifling, 8/10. Grips may have been replaced at some point. Comes with a Legacy certificate of authenticity. NOTE: This one does not have a safety notch.
