This is an extremely fine condition Colt Revolving Shotgun that retains 98% original blue on its barrel mixing with tiny specks of raised rust and staining. The muzzle shows about 5/8" of extreme rust about its circumference where the gun apparently was leaning, muzzle-pointed-down for a very long period of time. This could be cleaned off but doesn't really detract from the over-all look of the gun. The extremely rare gutta-percha cleaning rod has a crack in it but is still intact and extends as it should. This could probably be repaired. It is lacking the brass cleaning attachment on its end. The frame shows about 70 - 80% bright, vivid blue mixing with blue brown patina and the cylinder is a plumb blue-brown with traces of bright blues. The wood is excellent. A really stunning looking Revolving Rifle and worthy of a great Colt Collection. If you have any Colt Long-arms that you wish to part with, keep us in mind. We buy all types of Colt percussion firearms and accessories. This gun was sold several weeks ago but was just traded back to us for a Colt Open-Top Revolver.
