Colt 1878 Double Action Revolver, .45 cal. Boxer., MFG. 1879, SN: 3598 & all matching numbers. Comes with a factory letter verifying the current configuration & information. This 1878 was ordered by & delivered to Hartley & Gramham of New York, New York. Listed as blue finished. Barrel Length is 5 1/2'', The original 2-pc numbers matching, large diamond, checkered wood grips are crisp with nearly all the original finish. The barrel is basically a smooth, soft gray/brown patina with razor sharp legends. Ejector housing has 90% blue in the protected area. Cylinder is a soft brown patina matching barrel finish. Frame retains approximately 70% original Colt high polish blue finish. Straps are basically grey patina. Trigger guard retains 50% original blue. Front sight has never been touched. Indexes correctly both single & double action. Excellent, Strong, clean & defined rifled bore with some minor frosting. According to this letter, the caliber is ''.45 c'' for Colt, but the gun is stamped ''45 CAL B'' for Boxer, therefore it must be a factory recording mistake or the gun was built for the wrong caliber. It will not take a .45 Colt, but fits a .45 Boxer perfectly. A very nice original collectible, with documentation to match.* Antique No FFL Req - Value: 4000 to 6000
