Welcome! This listing features a First Generation Pre-War Colt M1873 S.A. .45 Colt Cavalry Revolver.
This Colt is in fair to good condition and features;
The bore is clean with little to no pitting and rifling is present.
The serial numbers on the cylinder, and load gate do not match. However if it was reworked at the Colt factory in 1900 - 1903 it would have mixed numbers.
The Inspector marks are located on the cylinder (C), Back Strap (L), and the bottom of the barrel (LP).
Mr. Lewis was the second sub-inspector of Colt revolvers assigned from the Springfield Armory in Dec. 1874 to inspect 210 revolvers. He was immediately preceded by Orville W. Ainsworth and succeeded by A.P. Casey. His work is very limited and rarely encountered today.
Given the production date of this revolver of 1874-75 it can readily be assumed that it was issued to a front line cavalry regiment and would have seen extensive service during the Indian Wars. How it escaped the recalls of the 1890s and early 1900 where thousands of cavalry revolvers were altered to 5-1/2? bbl length, is unknown.
