This is a Colt New Service revolver that was used in Canada, probably in World War 1. It was originally chambered for the .455 Eley, but the cylinder's chambers have been reamed to accept the .45 Colt cartridge. It will shoot the .45 Colt, or the .455 Eley. (Why would anybody want to shoot collectors .455 Eley ammo?) The barrel measures 5-1/2" in length with fixed sights. Overall condition is in about good to very good with the blue more of a matte finish as well as some scattered rust spots and minor pitting. The grips seem to be after market but are in very good condition without cracks or chips. The mechanics are in good condition and the revolver functions well. Lock-up is strong. This is an earlier model as the cylinder larch release is the flat, not round configuration. The bore has excellent rifling. An interesting revolver that according to the owner, was purchased from a RCMP officer. A C&R License is acceptable for transfer if permitted in your area.
