1891 Antique COLT PEACEMAKER SAA .45 Revolver
With Nickel & Ivory Finish!
Here we present an antique Colt Black Powder Frame Single Action Army Revolver in .45 Colt, manufactured in 1891 in Hartford, Connecticut. The Colt “Peacemaker” was introduced in 1873 and has become one of the most iconic firearms in all of history, thanks to its widespread use by the U.S. military, civilians and, more recently, in Western films.
Though Colt enjoyed the largest contracts of any handgun maker during the American Civil War, it had to rely on its array of percussion fired revolvers, namely the 1860 Army until the Smith & Wesson owned Rollin White Patent expired in 1869. This enabled them to begin making revolvers with completely bored through cylinder chambers in order to utilize modern metallic cartridge ammunition in the most effective manner. In 1869, Colt began development of a suitable cartridge revolver in earnest, first coming out with a number of conversions for their percussion lines, until 1872 when they debuted what was to become the Colt Model 1873 Single Action Army in the 1872 U.S. Trials. Needless to say, it won, and became the Army’s revolver of choice. It also became the sidearm of choice for many others like cowboys, guards, lawmen, crooks, shopkeepers and all manner of civilians.
This one features a 5-1/2 inch barrel in .45 Colt. It was finished in nickel long ago and given ivory grips to make a truly eye-grabbing sidearm.
The overall condition is near fine. 98% of the nickel finish remains. The markings are legible. The numbers match. The antique ivory grips are in fine condition. The bore is in good condition with strong rifling. The action is excellent. What a sharp gun!
