Your Colt is not in it's original Lewis Draper inspected configuration, It should have a 7 1/2" barrel and walnut stocks. It could have been sent back to Colt in the 1890's and reconfigured as an Artillery Model with a 5 1/2" barrel but I would think it would have a second inspectors mark for that. What you seem to have is a non standard Colt that has been rebarelled or has had the barrel shortened, with incorrect stocks, and has been refinished. My guess would be in the $3000 range.
