Sights / Optics: This revolver is mounted with a square notch grooved frame and a serrated ramped blade front sight.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The square butt grips are checkered walnut with silver Rampant Colt medallions on both sides. The checkering shows moderate wear tending to heavy wear near the bottom edges. The grips show compression marks on the back edges and bottom surfaces. The grips rate in about Good to Very Good overall condition.

Finish Originality: All Original

Bore Condition: The bore is bright and the rifling is sharp. There is no erosion.

Overall Condition: This revolver retains about 84% of its finish. There is thinning on the front edge of the barrel, the front and top edges of the frame, the front and rear edges of the cylinder and the edges of its flutes, and the sides of the trigger guard. The front side corners of the frame and the front and rear corners of the butt show surface loss. The sides of the frame, backstrap, front strap and cylinder show handling marks. The cylinder also shows a light drag line. The sides of the hammer show frosting. The screw heads show marks of a screwdriver. The markings are clear.

Mechanics: The lock-up on this revolver is PERFECT, with no play whatsoever on all 6 chambers. The trigger is smooth in double action and crisp in single action. The action functions correctly. We have not fired this revolver.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None

Our Assessment: This is a First Issue Colt Agent with an un-shrouded ejector rod and square grip frame. It is in Very Good condition with holster wear indicating it was carried a lot more than it was every shot. The bore is sharp and the cylinder lock-up is SOLID. With its 6-round cylinder, the Agent offers more firepower than the S&W Chiefs model and makes a great light-weight carry gun. You can also keep it in your night stand for home protection and not worry about whether or not you have to push the safety off before you can fire it.
