i had picked this up from a local collector. very smooth single action decent smooth metal. grips seem period original.
this would be 38 long colt correct? any idea of a ballpark. overall a nice functioning colt. colt website lists it as - 1898 - colt new army & navy models 1892,94,95,96 1901 &1903 , what colt may this be?
any information is always greatly appreciated.
will look , SN# IS 110048 if that helps,

You stated single action, does it function in double action (it should)? These were very delicate in regards to the springs that allowed DA. If yours doesn't there are smiths out there that can replace the spring with one that will never give you trouble due to better steel. 38 Colt is a great plinking round.

I had one for few months....delicate any slight but too quick action activity had problems?
Single action too....very slow it worked.
Had a hand sown Texas marked holster with hand stitch embroidered that brought as much intrest as the pistol...sold both together in ronoake Va. to a collector.
