Antique Colt .22 Single Shot

I inherited this and was hoping someone might be able to tell me where I could find more information about it. On the barrel is printed:

Colts PTFA MFG Co Hartford Conn USA
Patent May 29 Sep 18,83 May 26.85 June 15 86 Feb 22 1887

(the comma and period are suspect from age/wear)

According from my grandfather, his female cousin shot against Annie Oakley when she was doing her touring. The cousin didn't beat her, but I was told came pretty close An interesting story, and who knows how accurate it is, however I'd still like to know more about the rifle. My parents received a certificate from Colt about it, however it's been lost.

Serial number is 79489

Thanks!
