The loading gate assembly number is “3180”.The backstrap is marked “49/478”, and “JDJ to JAM”. The top of the gripstrap is marked “HN”, this is for Henry Nettleton a government inspector. The grip frame is “US” , the revolver is not.

Barrel Length: 4 ¾”. Note: the barrel may have been shortened.

Sights / Optics: This revolver is mounted with a blade front sight and a trough in the frame rear sight.

Type of Finish: Blue

Finish Originality: All Original

Bore Condition: The bore is dull and the rifling is medium deep. There is erosion and mild pitting present.

Overall Condition: This revolver retains about 5% of its metal finish. The remainder of the finish shows mostly smooth gray with some color showing in protected areas under the trigger guard and in the flutes. There are scratches and dings throughout and some tool marks on both sides of the barrel. The Screw heads are sharp with the grip screw showing some wear. There is a light dragline. The frame screws above the backstrap are likely replacements. The markings are clear. Overall, this revolver rates in about Good condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. Cocking the hammer advances the cylinder and locks back. The trigger releases the hammer. The jhalf cock position holds. The mainspring is very strong. We did not fire this revolver.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None

Our Assessment: This is a great find, a wonderfully interesting and functional first generation 1882 antique Colt Single Action Army, probably the most collectable handgun in the world. This one is even better, as a black powder frame, with military marked parts and an inscription. The grips are nice and the finish is great for its age - showing very little surface erosion. After stagnant prices, we have finally seen appreciation on Single Actions recently, and this one should outperform the average.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This antique revolver can be sold to anyone 18 years of age with valid ID.
