Guns by Sally-always the best for less. We are really proud to offer this great example of Colt's Frontier Six Shooter. Being the only Single Action Army caliber to have a special name, these wheel guns are in high demand. This one, made in the year of our Lord 1897, is in incredible condition, and will ship direct to your door. Don't let the natural patina fool you. The action is crisp, she indexes well, and the stampings are clear and sharp. Even the trademark has nearly a full circle around it. If you like the way she looks in pictures, it looks even better in person. The hammer slot bears the correct "7" and the rear of the cylinder has the correct "V" stamp. The worn grips may indicate a lifetime in a holster, probably on horseback. Colt was smart to offer the popular rifle caliber in a six gun. Cowboys loved them because they could carry one kind of ammo for their Colt and their Winchester. The bore of the 5 1/2 inch gunfighter length barrel is good, with a fair amount of shine and distinct rifling. The 4 click action works as designed, including the loading notch. The grips, worn as they are, fit like a glove. This Colt is pleasure to draw and point, and is pure Old West. I see 2 other Six Shooters recently listed for sale, both at over 5000 dollars. If you have been looking for the right Model 1873 to collect, shoot, or for investment, then look no further.
