Fairly rare case hardened border engraved action with patent marks forward of the trigger guard that read "PATENTED AUG.22,SEP.19,1882". Barrels are nice quality blade damascus steel with grey-to-brown tone and appear all original. Rib is flat, filed with a dolls head extension and reads "COLTS PT F A MFG CO HARTFORD CT U S A". This gun features an ebony tipped splinter forearm with Schnabel and has case hardened Deeley style release. Well checkered round knob pistol grip buttstock with original Colt brand black hard rubber checkered butt plate. Checkering is sharp and crisp. Boxlock action with automatic safety and made with extractors. Double Triggers with front being articulated. Wood is dark with semi gloss finish and has nice grain layout. CONDITION: Excellent for this model and vintage. This gun is as found and appears untouched having been found in a closet by our consignor in a home in the Northeast. Barrels retain greater than 80% original finish with minor handling marks. Action and hardware with strong original case colors. Wood does show some light wear with handling marks. Checkering is good. Mechanically Sound. If you have wanted a fresh and untouched 1883 Colt in fine original condition, look no further. JSL
