** Colt Bisley Model Single Action Army

.32 WCF. 5.5" barrel length. SN: 216984. Single-action revolver with fixed fluted 6-shot cylinder, 3-screw frame, small raked-back hammer, elongated grip strap, and fixed notch and blade sights. Blued metal finish, case hardened frame, and checkered gutta-percha grips with rampant Colt reliefs to both sides. Features elaborate floral and script engravings to metal surfaces overall, without engraver signature. 


Good to very good. Appears to have been refinished at some point prior to being engraved. Bore is frosty and shows signs of oxidation and pitting to rifling. Gutta-percha grips show some dullness to checkering and color has faded to a dark brown. Left side grip has repair made to corner of toe.
