    Could someone look at this blackpowder Colt and advise if correct

    This gun looks good to me but I am still a novice. I am interested in buying it. Its a 45 with 4 3/4 inch barrel. Gutta Percha Eagle grips.

    Buffed and refinished. Looks like someone added a little "case colour" with a torch. Good chance the grips/stocks are replacement, check for a partial SN scratched on the inside. Is it advertised as original or refinished?

    Best regards,

    My opinion is free, and worth every penny of it.

    A friend of mine has it for sale and no firm price has been discussed. He does not know if it's been refinished or not. I was concerned about the serial numbers on the trigger guard. I thought it was too nice for original finish.

    Agree the frame looks to have been refinished and/or cleaned sometime in it's life.

    It appears to have been refinished but a decent job was done. Good looking gun,

    I never heard the price it was offered at. Did I miss that part?
