    Colt SAA Bridgeport device, holster and belt F/S - Sold thank you

    This is a Bridgeport device used to carry a Colt Single Action on a belt without a holster; The Bridgeport Rig was patented in 1882 by Louis S. Flatau, sheriff of Camp County, Texas. Flatau envisioned mounting the item on a belt or a saddle. A modified hammer screw with a large head that protruded 3/4" from the frame would be installed on the Colt. This screw head would be inserted into the rig and held in place via a strip of spring steel that was attached to the gun belt via rivets. The shooter could rotate the revolver upward to fire without removing it from his belt if needed. These were fabricated by the Bridgeport Gun Implement Company of Bridgeport, Connecticut.[2]


    This device is mounted on a belt with an additional holster marked Wayne Zurl Maker Walland, TENN; the device is patented Jan 18, 1882 Bridgeport G.I. Co and is mounted with Chicago Screws so if you want to move to another belt it is easy. Included is the bolt used to replace the hammer screw. These are quite rare and normally the device alone is over $250; I am asking $295 for the entire rig and $8 shipping. Thank you for looking.
