The Colt Model 1878 is a double-action revolver that was manufactured by Colt's Manufacturing Company from 1878 to 1907. It is often referred to as the "Frontier" or the "Double Action Army" revolver. A total of 51,210 Model 1878 revolvers were manufactured from 1878 to 1907, including 4,600 for the US Ordnance Department. These are known as the "Philippine" or "Alaskan" models.
This revolver was shipped in 1895 from Colt. It has a 4-3/4 inch barrel chambered in .44-40 caliber with a decent bore. The bluing is still visible in most of the protected areas. The gun seems to be mechanically sound upon inspection. The gutta percha grips are intact with no chips or breaks and the checkering is still proud.
