** Colt US Model 1901 New Army Revolver

.38 caliber, 6" barrel, S/N 171117.  Visible numbers matching.  Blued finish with plain walnut grips.  Top of barrel marked with one-line Hartford Colt address.  Left side of barrel marked with caliber.  Left side of frame marked with inspector markings.  Bottom of butt marked with US Army markings, model, and serial number.  Weak cartouche on left grip.


Good.  Some wear to blued finish with most wear appearing on barrel and cylinder.  Some pitting to right side of barrel, with finish taking on a mixed plumb and gunmetal coloration.  Markings are legible with a very weak cartouche.  Action functions normally.  Some wear to grips consistent with age and use.  Bore is slightly gray with some surface rust.  Rifling shows some rounded edges.  

Estimate: $400 - $600
