I have seen recent versions of the Colt Sheriff's Model (with three and four inch barrels).
I would like to see photos of an original Sheriff's Model with "hump" (without frame modification).
Keith Cochran, Colt Peacemaker Ready Reference Handbook, lists Bull-barrel (nontapered), Long Barrel (7 1/2 inches), and Sharp Frame (1884) Sheriff's Models; I would like to see photos of any of these models.
Many Thanks

Outstanding, but is there a bull barrel or sharp frame model among them? I could not detect one; I am a novice. Isn't Cochran considered a highly respected authority on Colt Single Actions? I apparently was misinformed about the existence of an early hump frame model - a
Sheriff's Model with unmodified frame (no ejector rod hole drilled in frame) and sans ejector and assembly.

I have A Study of the Colt Single Action Army Revolver by Graham, Kopec, and Moore; it is leather bound and has letter from Kopec to original owner inside. When I saw it, I bought it!
