    #1468 Anyone have more information on this Early Civilian single action???

    I'm interested in learning more about these early single actions shipped to the Spandau arsenal in what was then Prussia, now part of Berlin. Apparently they were shipped from Colt's London Agency in late 1873. I have recently ordered the book "Colt Single Action Army Revolvers and the London Agency by C. Kenneth Moore", which hopefully will have lots of info on these, but I have not received it as of yet.
    Here is a link to an auction for serial #1468 https://www.morphyauctions.com/james...evolver-35271/

    Chapter 8 contains 22 pages on the Prussia/Germany dust up. Interesting reading.

    Thanks Rick ... I should have the book by tomorrow or Tuesday according to my Amazon tracking. I will definitely read up on that chapter first, and thanks for pointing me to it!
