I have never seen a Colt Cowboy other than magazine ads and some mention in magazine articles. I would appreciate it if someone would give a brief history and description of the revolver. I never heard of its use outside of Cowboy Action Shooting. Was the gun of interest to casual shooters and/or outdoorsmen? Where did it fit in the array of Italian replicas, and how did it compare to them and Rugers?
Low value European built (Swiss I think) with Colt name. Priced at the time about 1/2 of a 3rd gen Colt and twice the price of a Uberti copy. Transfer bar firing pin if I recall correctly, only came in 45 Colt and only with a 5.5 inch barrel.
