Standard early type Colt New Line Revolver in Caliber .41 Centerfire. Standard 2 1/4" round barrel with five shot cylinder. Nickel Plated Finish with fire blued accents and rosewood grips. The left side of the barrel has a nice etched panel which clearly reads "COLT NEW 41". Serial number is in the 2500 range which dates its production to the year 1875. Numbers are all matching on the barrel, cylinder, frame, and grips. Left side of the frame is marked "41 CAL". Barrel is clearly marked "COLT'S PT FA MFG CO / HARTFORD CT U.S.A."
Overall, NRA Antique Fine Plus to Excellent condition with the frame, barrel, and grip straps showing 95% original nickel plate. The cylinder has flaked to approx. 75-80% original nickel. Strong traces of fire blue on several of the screws, the trigger spring, and the back of hammer (note: sides were factory polished bright) with sides still somewhat bright. The rosewood grips are Very Good overall showing some little nicks and scratches but retain approx. 85-90% original varnish overall. Good mechanics. Good solid bore is a little frosty in places but exhibits strong rifling with no signs of any major pitting. Nice clean example of an early large frame New Line in the most desirable caliber.
