For anyone that has not been there or just wants to look at the Colts, go here: Gene Autry Museum

Click on Tab: Exhibitions \ Collection Spotlight \ Arms and Armor. Click on John E. Bianchi, Jr and George Strichman (Chairman of the Board) Colt Collection.

When you Click on a Photo, you get more information like this:



1896 Colt Single Action Revolver, this is one of the early so-called smokeless powder frames with the cross-bolt type, cylinder base pin retaining system. However Colt did not guarantee their revolvers for use with the then-new smokeless gun powder until 1898 (beginning with serial number 180000).

For Bianchi, Click on the 5th one shown: bianchi (1153 records).

For Strichman, it's the 3rd one from the bottom: strichman (20 records).

I saved the photos, then uploaded them to my Photo Bucket account. Then I did the "copy IMG Code" and added the Photos here.

HTH,

Billy

Excellent photographs, I remember Skeeter Skelton's article. And when you look at Charlie
Askins' New Service, remember it has "seen the elephant."
