Colt Richardson Conversion

Circa 1875

This is a Colt Richardson Conversion, .44 Colt caliber, serial #164682, circa 1875.

Colt Condition

THE REVOLVER shows approximately 75% of its original nickel finish – not a re-nickel. The brass trigger guard retains better than 90% of its original silver plating. Also, the one-piece ivory grips appear to be original to the gun showing a mellow aged patina. In addition, they fit as they should, just showing some slight, but consistent, shrinkage. The grips show no damage or losses, just the typical age induced cracklature at the bottom. All the serial numbers match, as well as the wedge number. The cylinder scene is completely visible under the nickel plate. Overall, the mechanics are excellent as well as the bore. All the markings are sharp and clear and the gun appears to be 100% correct in all aspects.
