    Cavalry pics

    Been going through the safe and decided to post a few pics of my US Cavalry inspected by David F. Clark, made in 1882.

    Certainly a keeper for me.

    Interestingly, your gun bears serial number 84306. Serial number 84304 belonged to John Wesley Hardin, the gunfighter and killer who many historians call the deadliest man in the Old West.

    Not sure about Colt SAA's , but the US Army did buy a few hundred S&W Schofields that were factory nickel.

    Very nice gun!
    I seem to remember reading the Indian Scouts were issued nickel SAA's. Not sure if or how they were stamped.

    Is the gun nickeled or just polished bright? The Indian scout / nickel gun story is not true.
    This all started with one gun!
