SN 24690. Cal. 36. Remarkable rendition by one of America’s most talented 20th century engravers.

This gun is a faithful facsimile made on a Colt 2nd Gen black powder revolver made in 1978 and as can be seen in photographs it is quite elaborate. Gun is in truly amazing condition retaining virtually all of its orig finish. Horatio Q.
