The Artillery revolvers were those that were originally issued as 7-1/2" Cavalry revolvers that were returned to the arsenal, all worn parts were replaced with no concern for number, arsenal shortened to 5-1/2", and reissued for use around the time of the Spanish American War. The frame on this revolver, as well as the trigger guard and backstrap show matching numbers, having been inspected by Renaldo Carr and stamped "R.A.C." on frame and right side of the one piece walnut original grips. The barrel bears the inspection stamp of "J.T.C." for John T. Cleveland and "4127". Cylinder number partially readable that appears to be "3103" with a proof "P" and "D.F.C." David Clark inspector stamp. After conversion, these weapons were arsenal refinished and reissued. Left side of frame has the two line patent date with "U.S." stamp. Has a single line stamp on barrel and a screw-in black powder frame. Features case colored frame and hammer with blued barrel, cylinder, straps and housing. Left side of the one piece grips has the date "1891" and inspector stamp "S.E.B." Stanhope E. Blunt. Stanhope inspected the final 4,000 Colt Single Action Army revolvers purchased by the U.S. Government. Barrel and housing retain generous amounts of blue mixed with freckled soft patina. Cylinder retains approximately 95% arsenal blue. Frame retains approximately 50-60% of the arsenal case colors, some bright. Trigger gaurd and backstrap retain a pleasing mix of blue with soft patina. Near mint grips. Indexes and locks up like new. Near mint bore. A love, far above average, lightly used Artillery Colt.
