Features round barrel, blue and case colored finish, brass trigger guard, steel backstrap, cut for shoulder stock, one piece varnished walnut grips, rebated Naval battle cylinder. Full or partial matching numbers can be found on frame, barrel, cylinder, trigger guard ("3" is light), backstrap, cylinder pin and wedge. CONDITION: This Colt has survived in remarkable condition. Barrel retains approximately 70% original factory blue finish, effortlessly blending with soft patina to give a lovely, homogenous bluish look, including the forcing cone. No visible colors on loading lever. Basically patina. Cylinder is a smooth, brown patina with sharp legends. Naval battle scene is near completely visible, around 85%. All original nipples. Three of the safety posts are proud, others are all visible with traces of original blue. Left side of frame still displays approximately 50-60% case colors with one marred screw. Right side displays approximately 50% colors. Varnished walnut grips are excellent with just edge wear. Hammer colors have patterned out. 15-20% bright blue on backstrap. Action indexes and locks up correctly. Strong, clean lands and grooves. Comes with a period mismatched original shoulder stock with brass frame and buttplate. Serial number is in two places on buttstock, both of those match each other but not the gun and were stamped above another number of which you can see a ghost image. Brass was cleaned at one time but is starting to retain patina again.
