Antique Revolving Rifles by Colt are rare and desirable. In this condition, they are stumbled upon only once every few years. All markings, edges, and action are sharp and crisp with full sub-inspection marks and cartouches to each side of each wrist. 85% barrel blue, some of it aging and generous blue to the frame and cylinder. Fine wood and bore with a 2 digit, early serial number. This 44 caliber model is extremely rare with production estimates at 300 - 400 total and this example probably rests in the top 5% or less in terms of condition. Martial Colt Revolving Rifles in this configuration are among the rarest of all Colt Martial arms. Refer to Southernland and Wilson's book for more info.
