#28825, cal. .45 Colt, 7.5″ barrel with a dark bore and worn rifling. The front sight slightly altered, the barrel has the early italic marking for factory address. The serial numbers match on the frame and gripstraps, the last two digits are visible on the barrel, and the cylinder number is illegible. The revolver retains all of a good-looking nickel-plated refinish with a clear two-line patent marking on the frame and a partially legible barrel address. The cylinder and ejector housing have some light pitting under the finish. The one-piece walnut grip is in good condition and shows moderate wear. The mechanism functions well. This old Colt S.A.A. was made in 1876, the same year as the Custer Massacre. This is an antique revolver and will transfer with no Federal restrictions. RR Auction COA.
