Description: serial #16107, 44-40, 7 1/2" barrel with a very good bore that shows a patch of roughness near the muzzle. This is a rare etched panel Frontier DA revolver which is in original nickel plated finish. This revolver is completely honest and remains in very nice condition. The barrel and ejector rod housing retain about 30% original nickel plated finish with the balance bearing a pleasing smooth gray patina with excellent, strong etch remaining fully legible. The frame and cylinder retain 90% original nickel plated finish with areas of loss bearing a pleasing smooth gray patina which looks very similar to the slightly dulled nickel finish. Fire blue on the hammer spine and trigger remains strong. The original two piece checkered hard rubber grips rate excellent with strong checkering and no chips. The revolver comes with factory letter confirming the configuration and finish and showing shipment to Hartley and Graham on April 19, 1886. A rare and desirable large frame antique double action Colt. (15506-46) {ANTIQUE}
