This Colt was produced in 1878. The pistol's serial number is 44570. It has the standard 7 1/2 inch barrel. It is chambered for the 45 Colt cartridge. The barrel has the one line address on top of the barrel. The bore is in good condition with sharp lands. The chambers are also in good condition with no pitting. The original hammer has no repairs and all of the cocks are intact with no damage. This hammer still has traces of color cased finish. The action works very fine with no issues. This old Colt still locks up tight! The cylinder base pin has the correct smal hole at each end. The one piece wood grips are correctly serial numbered to this pistol. The cylinder is also serial numbered to this Colt. The trigger guard and back strap are also serial numbered to this pistol. All the screws are in fine condition with no burring. The ejector rod has the correct bulls eye ejector head. This pistol is mostly in a light patina finish. There is original bluing in protected areas. This Colt has seen much holster wear and no abuse. The wood grips retain about 70% of the original varnish. There is a well worn chip on the bottom forward part of the right grip. The factory letter states that this pistol was shipped to Hibbard, Spencer & Co. Chicago Illinois. April 2 1880. I also have a letter from the Great Grandson of the original owner. The Rancher was in Gove County Kansas. His name was Link Sturman. It is not often that you can trace an old Colt to the original owner! Here is one you can! This is certainly a Collector grade pistol in fine working order that has not been messed with. The two letters also help with the history of this fine Colt.

Antique H.L.V. Private (11) F. No. 522 -20

Concerning Phone Calls

For those folks that do not know me yet, I’m very hard of hearing on the phone. Therefore when you would call me, I will pick up the phone and tell you that I will call you right back. I have caller ID just so that you know, the reason for that is I cannot use a regular phone. I have to switch over to what is called a voice carry over phone. When I call you back  you will hear my voice in our conversation, an operator will type your conversation to me on my phone view screen. With me reading what you are saying to me saves me a lot of confusion for me mishearing words.

I do want to talk to you and answer your questions without mistakes or miscommunications. This system works pretty good, so please be willing to be patient with my hearing loss.

My wife Marcia has fine hearing on the phone and is quite knowledgeable about firearms and is very able to help you over the phone.

Thanks, Harry
