Tonight I visit some dear friends that have just downsized the house and the wife just came back yesterday attending to the passing of her Father.
So I wandered about the network wiring, the TV setup, and all of that. I have to go back to complete those tasks. I was presented with this:
It was her Fathers. Its a Colt Single Action and locks up tight and a trigger that breaks like glass. Some light surface rust but oh, what a beautiful revolver!
So it has on the Cylinder "Colt patent #320". Very little else visible without a disassemble.
I have no idea where to go from here except determining the caliber and a more detailed examination. I will get it here for a light run through with Break Free and present back to them and more detailed pics.
So tonight I ask my friends, what is it? What do I need to do to at least get enough info for the Colt Historian letter?
I continue to be humbled in this endeavor.
