    Wink Uncles Collection of Colt Revolvers- COMPLETE (MORE!?) Enjoy!

    Due to the popularity of my other threads here, i will post revolvers from the collection of my uncle and his father. They have both passed. My uncle sadly, just passed this past week. In his passing I have gladly been charged with the task of sorting a large collection of Mostly Pre-1968 Colts. Also in this collection is many vintage Winchesters, U.S. Military arms (Winchester-lee, hotchkiss, rolling rock, Spencer rifle, Henry rifle to name a few). This collection may have been passed down 2 or 3 generations. Some are going to be kept but many must be sold for the estate. See original post for revolvers that will be sold. While i sort through these, and prepare to sell them; I wish to show them off to you fine folks. This thread will be dedicated to his Colt Revolvers. The newest is a colt python.. the oldest i have found yet is a 1860 Colt Army serial dating it to 1863, All matching.. has blood stained finger prints around the grip.. very interesting example and down right beautiful.

    First off .. Some of what you have already seen but trying to keep it organized...

    What will be sold so far in the revolver collection

    1902 SAA Colt Bisley Model (SPF
    * )
    1860 Colt Army dated 1863 (on Gunbroker)

    does that Army Special have any other markings, like on the butt or grip straps? I ask because of the lanyard and smooth grips often mean its a contract gun to an agency or army or something.

    Colt Python, this was Issued and have receipt and box. Appeared to be owned by a LA PD cop in the 1960s, he must of monkeyed with the spring that handles the double action. He messed it up and my uncles father bought it and never got a chance to send it to colt,it will be sent to colt for repair.

    Enjoy..

    I for one sure like looking at the pics. You of course know at this point, the US marked single action in that condition is very very rare and desireable. The army special appears to be military issue, does it have any other markings on it?

    The only markings that i can find other than the serial numbers are is a upside down triangle with perhaps a VP or IP on the trigger guard.
