COLT “Bisley Model” Six-Shooter Revolver in .38 WCF
Made in 1907 in Hartford
Here we present a Colt Bisley Model Revolver in .38 WCF , made in 1907 in Hartford, Connecticut. It was a target-shooting adaptation of the Single Action Army which had been around for about 20 years by this time. With its more vertical grip and lower hammer spur many found it easier to shoot and this same concept has been carried through to today with many modern revolvers. It was named after the famous shooting range in England. Out of 357,859 total first generation SAAs produced, only about 45,000 were made in the Bisley configuration.
The left side of the frame, underneath the cylinder is marked “PAT. SEPT.19. 1871./ JULY 2.72.JAN.1875.” The left side of the barrel is marked “BISLEY MODEL .38 W.C.F. ” The top of the barrel is marked “COLT’S PT. F.A.MFG.CO/HARTFORD, CT. U.S.A.”
The overall condition is very good and was nicely refinished at some point. 95% of the finish remains. The markings are clear and legible. Serial numbers match. The grips are in great condition. The bore is semi-bright with sharp rifling. The action on this revolver is excellent!
