Clarks Antiques antique firearms Colt Frontier Six Shooter - Price $10,500.00
A true piece of Western lore is this antique Colt Frontier Six Shooter. A very nice blue and case colored Colt SAA .44-40 with a nice sharp etched panel and original eagle grips.
This Colt SAA shows all its original parts, all matching numbers, showing about 90% of its original finish with approx 30% still bright. Case colors showing on frame and hammer have a muted patina. All markings are correct for the era of this gun and the etched panel is vivid and fully readable. The barrel shows some slight holster wear and minor knackering on the bottom at the cylinder pin area and the front sight has been reduced slightly. The mechanics are good and the bore very good.
The eagle grips are original, fit perfect, and only show one spot of slight wear on the right side. Inside the left grip is scratched “Boit (bought) July 4, 1889” and “$14” in two places.
A letter from Colt (included) indicates the gun was manufactured circa 1889, but the shipping records were lost or destroyed many years ago.
