    New guy with a Colt...

    I have been given about 11 Civil War guns including this Colt. Any help with it would be great. It is serial number 5688 and is cut for a stock. I got a ID'd Starr revolver, Remington, early war long arms etc. But this fluted cylinder Colt intrigues me I guess due to its low number. My dad just bought stuff without looking into any of it. Help? Should I pay the $300 for a letter?

    “It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carry the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life, or death ---- it shall be life.” - Ten Bears - “The Outlaw Josey Wales”
