Caliber .45 Colt with 7-1/2 inch barrel with one piece walnut grips with D.F.C. inspector cartouche on right side. Strongly marked U.S. on left side of frame to rear of patent markings. The unusual aspect of this US Inspected Cavalry is that it is accompanied by a Colt Factory letter dated September 2009 indicating it was shipped with 25 revolvers to Simmons Hardware in ST, Louis May 9th 1885, indicating it was an overrun revolver as it has no condemned markings or the commercial .45 caliber markings on the trigger guard.

Manufacturer: Colt Model: Single Action Army Serial No. 249431 Caliber/Bore: .41 Colt Barrel Length: 4 - 3/4” FFL Status: Curio & Relic Manufactured 1903, Classic Cowboy configuration with 4-3/4” barrel with two line Hartford address. Blue and case color finishes with two-piece Colt hard rubber grips. Matching serial numbers observed on frame, trigger guard and backstrap.

The front sight area has a factory dovetailed filler with the factory original front blade sight installed through it. This is a practice that is rarely encountered and is a testament as to the frugality of Colt Manufacturing. When new and freshly finished the dovetail was probably not visible to the naked eye and thus preventing the lost cost of replacing a barrel that was erroneously slotted for the front blade at manufacture.
