With Colt factory letter confirming configuration and shipment to H&D Folsom, New York, C/o Nat Sportsman, August 12th, 1908. The Sheriff's Model Colt Single Action Army is the single most desirable configuration aside from the legendary Colt Buntline. Serial No. 305413 has most of its original blue on the barrel, full dimension front sight with an extremely minor dent and minuscule pitting at the extreme front of the muzzle. Frame retains considerable fading case colors. Patent dates and encircled rampant Colt are worn, however gun does not appear to have been refinished. Possibly an old frame was reused as Colt was notoriously prone to reuse parts. Cylinder retains much original bright bluing with medium-strong tracking line. Trigger guard retains considerable original blue. Backstrap mostly steel color with some bluing in recesses. Hammer retains some bright case coloring. Screws retain most of their original factory nitre blue. Action is crisp and bore is brilliant. Rare and desirable factory panel checkered walnut grips retain much original varnish, pencil numbered 305413 and further stamped "223" at butt. This very fine, late Sheriff's Model once belonged to well-known and respected Colt collector and Colt Collectors Association President Jeff Faintich who wrote for the letter in February of 1989. Very attractive and extremely rare Sheriff's Model with excellent provenance. CORRECTION: Photo added. This revolver is a C&R, not antique. CORRECTION: Barrel length corrected to 4-3/4".
