All matching Colt Single action US Artillery, cal 45 Colt . Flayderman P. 101/102, item 5B-141, type III.

The US Cavalry single actions were rebuilt by colt and Springfield by the end of the century. all parts were stripped, restored or repalced adn reassembled without giving notice to serialnumbers.  3 different types are known, , type 1, having all mixed serials, type II all matching except barrel , type III all matching, which is incredible rare and brings usually a 200 % premium.
This is a genuine type 3.  Serial 13783, all matching, including the barrel, built in 1874;   adres iis light but al there.  Barrel is inspected by  David F Clark. only one line of the frame patents is visible but has a good US.  The orig. grips are  there, left one has a visible cartouche, right side  has a repair at the top. Works fine . Overall medium grey, having a good bore, some casehardening on beginning of rame.  This is a very hard variation of a single action to locate. And a true US Military gun.
