LETTERED COLT Bisley SINGLE ACTION ARMY Revolver
Kansas SAA in .38-40 WCF Manufactured in 1902
Here we present a Colt Bisley Model Single Action Army Revolver in .38 WCF, manufactured in Hartford, Connecticut in 1902. This particular revolver was shipped to Atchison, Kansas along with a dozen others to Blish, Mize, & Silliman Hardware Co., a still extant company owned by 5th generation descendants of these 3 brothers-in-law.
This is an example of the Bisley variant of the Colt Single Action Army revolver. The primary differences were a lower hammer spur and a more curvaceous grip frame. These were optimized toward target shooting but many general users and shooters who were not simply target shooters preferred them as well.
The overall condition is good. The iron parts are gray. The markings are clear. The numbers match. The trademarked grips are in decent shape, showing lots of wear around the frame. The bore is dark with good rifling. The hammer spur has been repaired at some point. The action is functional.
