COLT Bisley SINGLE ACTION ARMY .41 LC Revolver
SAA in SCARCE .41 Caliber Long Colt Manufactured in 1907
Here we present a Colt Bisley Model Single Action Army Revolver in .41 Long Colt, manufactured in Hartford, Connecticut in 1907. Out of 44,350 Bisley revolvers made, only 3,159 were chambered for .41 Colt cartridges. Though Colt enjoyed the largest contracts of any handgun maker during the American Civil War, it had to rely on its array of percussion fired revolvers, namely the 1860 Army until the Smith & Wesson owned Rollin White Patent expired in 1869. This enabled them to begin making revolvers with completely bored through cylinder chambers in order to utilize modern metallic cartridge ammunition in the most effective manner. In 1869, Colt’s began development of a suitable cartridge revolver in earnest, first coming out with a number of conversions for their percussion lines, until 1872 when they debuted what was to become the Colt Model 1873 Single Action Army in the 1872 U.S. Trials. Needless to say, it won, and became the Army’s revolver of choice. It also became the sidearm of choice for many others like cowboys, guards, lawmen, crooks, shopkeepers and all manner of civilians.
This variant is characterized by a more curvaceous grip frame and lower hammer spur, allowing for a higher purchase on the revolver. It turned out to influence revolvers for over a century now!
The overall condition is very good. Some of the original blue finish remains with a gray patina throughout. The markings are clear. The numbers match. The trademarked hard rubber grips are in great shape. The bore is in good condition with nice rifling. The action is excellent as is lockup. Here is a solid Colt Bisley SAA in a hard to find chambering!
