Our Assessment: This is not the first Beretta .45 Long Colt revolver we have seen but it is rare for us to see one. Patterned after the Colt Bisley Model Single Action Army, it has the characteristic low, wide hammer spur, distinct grip contour and wide trigger of Colt’s model. This revolver appears as if it was either used once or not at all outside of the factory. It is perfect for the Cowboy Action Shooter who wants to be true to the old west in their choice of calibers. Good luck in your bidding!
