are you sure its 8" barrel and not 71/2". im pretty sure they could have come with 7 1/2" also. most colts did, im no expert but i been doing alot of search since i inherited this 1847 1st generation single action
if it was given to you FREE! then what a deal. how much do you want for it?
is it a colt for sure or a replica?
give me the details i will find it for you
is U.S stamped on it?
