This is one of those old guns that comes with a few extra goodies. This one has its original box, with correct end label, collector paperwork from a previous owner, a specification brochure from Colt, an Oilright product brochure, a Special Instructions pamphlet. Also included is a sample bottle of oil, and a cleaning brush. It is possibly in unfired condition. This first issue has a smooth top strap and a last patent date of 1905. The previous owner’s ( from Hutchinson , KS ) notes indicate that he bought it from a banker in 1990 for $450.
