COLT SINGLE ACTION
SERIAL NUMBER 16192
MANUFACTURED 1875

This is a really nice, early production, black powder Single Action Colt which was returned to the factory and refinished.  My guess is it went back to the factory sometime around the turn of the century, circa 1900.  The gun has not been fiddled with since the factory refurbished it.  As a matter of fact, it still has what looks to be the old grease inside it and in the crevices.  The right hand rear trigger guard post is stamped with a factory refinish mark, which is a star.  All the major components are stamped with a three digit assembly number and the letter "N" which is the factory refinish assembly numbers.  This marking is found on the barrel, ejector housing, the face of the cylinder, the bottom of the frame, the back strap, trigger guard and loading gate, etc.  The barrel and frame markings were remarked at the factory to conform with the current production as of the day it was returned.  Interestingly, they saved all of the original parts.  The barrel and ejector assembly are the early black powder parts, as is the hammer, firing pin and it looks like they saved the original grips.  It is in a beautiful factory nickel finish with a little breakthrough and minor pepper here and there.  The chambers of the cylinder and the bore of the barrel are superb.  The action is as crisp as the day it was reworked.  The barrel is serial numbered to match the gun but the gun's last four digits are 6192, the barrel is marked 5192.  One digit off is commonly seen in Colts.  We've always attributed it to guns assembled on Monday morning by workmen who may have had a little too much schnapps over the weekend.  A really solid, good looking factory refinished Single Action.  Have no doubt, this is clearly a factory refinished Single Action.  SOLD!!
