Late Military Model 1878-1891
Later Military Models are serial numbered to approximately #136000. They bear block-style barrel address without the # prefix and suffix. Frames are marked "US"; grips have inspector's cartouche. Finish is military-style polish, case colored frame and remainder blued. Grips are oil-stained walnut. On military marked Colts, it is imperative that potential purchases be authenticated as many fakes have been noted. NOTE: Revolvers produced from 1878 to 1885 will command a premium. Seek an expert appraisal prior to sale.
