Markings: The left side of the barrel is marked “COLT. D.A. 38” and the top of the barrel is marked “COLT’S PT. F.A. MGF. CO. HARTFORD CONN. U.S.A. / PATENTED AUG. 5. 1884. NOV. 6. 88. MAR. 5. 95.” The crane cut is marked “3” and “665”, the crane and cylinder release latch are both marked “665”.The underside of the extractor star and the rear of the cylinder under the star are both marked “133”. The rear face of the cylinder is also marked “V”. The left side of the frame has a Rampant Colt in a circle and the underside of the grip frame is marked “93806”.

Barrel Length: 6”

Sights / Optics: The front sight is a fixed half round blade. The rear sight is a fixed “V” notch milled into the topstrap.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The grips are checkered walnut with silver colored Colt medallions. The checkering is worn smooth in places, particularly on the right panel. There are no chips or cracks, but there are compression and handling marks. The grips rate in about Good overall condition.

Type of Finish: Blue

Finish Originality: All Original

Bore Condition: The bore is gray and the rifling is clearly visible. There is even light erosion throughout the bore.

Overall Condition: This handgun retains about 1% of its metal finish. Almost all the finish has been replaced by a gray patina and very light pinprick surface erosion. There are traces of case coloring on the sides of the hammer and trigger. There are two vertical scratches on the outside of the crane and lighter swirls following the contour of the recoil shield on the right sideplate and frame. The screw heads are surprisingly good, but do show signs of being turned. The markings are clear but faint. Overall, this handgun rates in about Good to Very Good condition.

Mechanics: The single and double actions function correctly. We did not fire this handgun.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None

Our Assessment: This is in many ways, the first of the modern double action Colt revolvers. It has the swing-out cylinder and bolt locking slots (notches) on the cylinder. This was the model that replaced the Model of 1889 by addressing many of its shortcomings and was the forerunner of the Officers’ Model. This model was made for both the Navy and Army, and with a more rounded grip frame for the Marines. Own a piece of Colt revolver history and see just how far they came from to reach the Python.
