According to the factory letter this gun was shipped as a .45 caliber with a 4-3/4" barrel, factory nickel finish, rubber stocks, factory engraved, shipped on March 11th, 1884 to Schoverling Daly & Gales in New York City in a shipment of six guns. This gun remains in that configuration today, albeit it has been masterfully restored to as new condition. The engraving looks to be typical Helfricht and is nearly full coverage. Gun retains virtually all of the nickel finish. All factory stamps are sharp as new. Screws and trigger have all the fire factory blue finish. Front sight is full height. Hammer is nickel. Even the screw in frame takedown screw is mint with all the fire blue. Sports a pair of near mint First Generation Colt gutta percha eagle grips that fit like a glove. Action has been tuned to new with all four clicks. Bore is near mint. This beautiful revolver represents a golden opportunity to own an almost new factory engraved antique short barreled Army .45 at a fraction of the price of an all original one, or even a worn out original. It has never been fired since the restoration.
