Colt Single Action Revolver with Original Holster & Belt

A 7 ½ inch barreled Colt Single Action revolver in .44 caliber, manufactured in 1882, in what appears to be its original holster and cartridge belt. The gun has all matching serial numbers except for the loading gate. The gun has seen extensive use, but has an excellent smooth working action. The barrel is bulged at about 3 ½ inches. The barrel has the Hartford address. The holster is an early one in brown leather, in an almost “slim Jim” style. The belt has cartridge loops and a nickel plated brass square buckle. This is a superb, all original cowboy item. Dimensions: The gun is 14 inches long overall, with a 7 ½ inch barrel. The belt has been extended to a 46 inch waist. Shipping within the continental U.S. $65.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance. 

 

Condition:

 The barrel has a bulge at 3 ½ inches. The ejector housing is loose, and needs a replacement screw. There is minor pitting on the action below the loading gate. The grips are worn but solid. The holster and belt show wear but are in good, flexible condition. The belt has had an extension in pigskin added for a man with a larger waist, but it has been well-done.
