Antique COLT Black Powder SAA ARTILLERY Revolver

U.S. Single Action Army Frame Made 1883

Here we present an antique Black Powder Frame U.S. Artillery Model Colt Single Action Army Revolver. The frame was made in 1883. The Artillery or Springfield Armory Model of the SAA is one of the most interesting of the Colt SAAs. This is a revolver that was originally manufactured by Colt in 1879 in Hartford, Connecticut, inspected by the Ordnance Department inspector, shipped and issued to the cavalry. After a period in the service, it was then shipped back to either Colt or Springfield Armory for a complete re-haul to make it serviceable for the field yet again (c.1895-1903). This included cutting the barrel to 5-1/2 inches. Only about 17,000 of these re-armored guns were completed. In all but the rarest variant of the already scarce Artillery Model, the serial numbers will be mixed as various worn out parts were replaced by those of varying number. Many of these saw action in the Spanish-American War and the Philippine-American War and who knows what they had seen before or after that period. They are a fantastic piece of history.

The top of the barrel is marked “COLT’S PT. F.A. MFG. CO. HARTFORD CT. U.S.A.”. The left side of the frame, underneath the cylinder, is marked “PAT.SEPT.19.1871/PAT.JULY.2.1872/PAT.JAN.19.1875”. To the right of this is the “U.S.” marking. The “S” appears to have been amateurishly “freshened” and this part still bears the inspection mark of David F. Clark. His initials also appear on the cylinder. The Ainsworth “A” is on the trigger guard. The initials “J/P” are on the barrel.

The overall condition is very good. About 30% of the blue finish remains. The markings are clear. The walnut grips show a good amount of honest wear. The bore is in very good condition with sharp rifling. The action is strong.

Own the original! This is a legitimate antique and not a reproduction.

Barrel is 5-1/2 inches.
