Genesis of the Colt Single Action Army. This pristine example of the Richards Mason Conversion has the two line patent dates on the frame, .44 caliber marking on the trigger guard and a six notch cylinder as opposed to the scarcer 12 notch cylinder. All serial numbers match. The loading gate is undoubtedly matched to the number of the frame, but did not disassemble to verify. Revolver is remarkably in near mint condition retaining nearly all of its original bright nickel finish. Most of these revolvers experienced heavy use on the Western Frontier and most often the barrels were cut down and sent to Mexico. CONDITION: Near mint, retaining nearly all of its original bright nickel finish. Screws are excellent. Bright clean bore. Lovely varnished grips have minor dents and scratches. Cylinder has a near perfect Naval engagement scene. Action is tight and crisp as new. Fired very little, if any. An extremely fine example of a scarce Colt revolver. MKS CORRECTION: There is a crack in the frame just behind the loading gate.
