Antique COLT ARTILLERY Model SINGLE ACTION ARMY US Military .45 REVOLVER
U.S. Marked from the Spanish-American War Period
Here we present an antique Colt Single Action Army Revolver Artillery Model, with the frame made in 1874. The Colt Single Action Army, or SAA, is a classic “six-shooter” that is a worldwide icon of the United States of America and the Western Frontier. The Artillery or Springfield Armory Model of the SAA is a period (1895-1903) armory or factory refinished gun to extend U.S. military service. The Cavalry Model 1873s were originally issued with 7½” barrels in .45 Colt. Most of these guns, as this one is, had the barrels shortened to 5½” and are now known as Artillery Models. Only about 17,000 of these refurbished guns were completed. In all but the rarest variant of the already rare Artillery Model, the serial numbers will be mixed. U.S. military purchased SAAs are among the most sought after historic sidearms of the era, having been used in action in the Spanish-American War and the Philippine-American War by the U.S. Army.
The overall condition is good. The bore is bright. The action functions properly. Dark patina with some pinpricking on the exterior. The frame is stamped “US”. Here is a great chance to own a Colt SAA that represents significant American military history from the Indian Wars to the Spanish-American & Philippine-American Wars!
