I am not an expert on these and would appreciate some feedback from those more knowledgeable than me. Colts website puts it at 1916. Thanks.
And that’s why I will never be in the deep end of the pool. The knowledge here is amazing. I’m learning something new all the time. Nice revolver never the less. At least in my uneducated opinion.No question a refinish and remarked. Good catch on the 1916 circle pony. But the most obvious is the ugly, modern hot salt blue on a 1916 gun that should be carbona blue.
Th gun totally lost any value as a "original" 1st Gen at that point. I wouldn't call it a "nice" refinish, anyone knowing the actual difference the work is obviously..bad.
As was said prior, nope, just a regular stand alone pony. Some one had about half the little details right on the refinish. Makes me wonder why all the work and not get them right. Kinda odd to me when you look at the gun and see those errors and then what they did do right. Modern hot salt blue a early 1st Gen Colt? Only a complete hack would do that.BGood said:The 1916s should have the "rocking pony" and will look like this..
I was going to say the gun‘s cylinder was not original because there’s no bevel, but your’s in top picture is like that, too so must be right.
