Colt Open Top Revolver

44 Henry Rimfire Caliber

Circa 1871-1872

This is the finest, untouched, Colt Open Top Revolver I have ever come across. The gun is 44 Henry rimfire caliber and appears to have never been fired. The gun is in excellent overall condition with approx. 90% or more of the original nickel finish.

This gun shows no use what so ever. A Colt factory letter is included as well as a letter of authentication and appraisal from respected firearms historian David J. Palmiter of Archbald, PA. According to Mr. Palmiter’s appraisal “This Open-Top is worthy of inclusion in the most advanced collection of rare Colt Firearms”.

Open Top Mechanics

It has the rare small Navy grip (steel) with factory burl wood grips and fire blued screws. The hammer and trigger show muted case colors and the cylinder scene is nearly perfect. Excellent mechanics and a perfect bore with no black powder stains at the front of the cylinder.
