The Colt Factory letter states that this Colt Double Action Revolver 1878 #50322 was shipped to Sears Roebuck & Co., Chicago, IL as a 45/c, 7-1/2” barrel, Blue, Stocks Not Listed, on Aug 25, 1903, with 5 similar guns in shipment.
The gate #159 matches number that would be under left grip on frame.
This frame can be used in re-assembly to the specs specified in the Colt letter. Includes original sideplate, sideplate screw, gate, and gate spring. Would look great paired up in a Sears Roebuck & Company Holster!
This frame also includes Colt letter info from their shipping records (cost $150).
All gun photos presented here are of Extremely-High-Definition quality, and represent enlargement up to 7X Actual Size! This means that a spot the diameter of a sharp pencil point (0.015”) can appear to be almost 1/8”.
In some cases, I can ship directly to a C&R licensed individual.
No International sales. Not being sold as a shooter, but as a functional collector’s Colt M1878 frame. If you want to shoot any older Colt, first take it to a gunsmith and have it checked out.
