Stock Configuration & Condition: The grips are smooth and lightly finished two-piece walnut grips with gold medallions. All five pairs of the grips rate in nearly-new-in-box condition, with none showing wear other than finishing imperfections at the factory and a possible box rub or two. The grips are in Excellent overall condition.

Type of Finish: Blue

Finish Originality: Factory Original

Bore Condition: The bores are all bright and the rifling is sharp. There is no erosion in the bores. In this writer’s opinion, the bores rate a 9 or 10 out of 10.

Overall Condition: These handguns retain about 99% of their metal finish. All five guns match in condition, with no mentionable wear, handling marks, drag lines or imperfections. It appears that these guns are unturned and the condition and lack of drag lines further support this supposition. The guns appear to have lived their lives in their boxes, likely never even being displayed and still residing in the factory oiled bags. Some of the pistols have some dried oil residue on the frames that will clean off easily. The screw heads are sharp and unturned. The markings are clear. Overall, these handguns are in Excellent and LNIB condition.

Mechanics: We have no reason to believe that the actions do not function correctly. We have not tested the action to preserve the condition of each revolver. We did not fire these firearms.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: All 5 guns come in their original boxes, with matching end labels, Styrofoam inserts, plastic bags, hang tags and paperwork. The paperwork is attached to each Styrofoam insert and none look to have been opened. Each gun is complete with all items shipped from the factory, and the set is complete with all 5 guns. Also included is the factory glass and walnut display case. The case is still wrapped as was done for shipping, and we can only see light marks to the exterior from storage.

Our Assessment: This is the pinnacle of modern Colt Single Action Army collecting. The Sheriff’s models are distinguished by the lack of ejector rods and ejector rod housings. They came in 5 barrel lengths, all of which are represented here. This a complete and Rare set of Colts, all in Mint condition. The guns are beautiful and complete on their own and made even better by the tasteful display case and completeness of the set. Every gun room needs this set greeting its visitors, and this set is one of the best we have ever seen offered for sale. The condition is as pristine as could be hoped for. No serious collector can afford to miss out on this set! Please see our photos and good luck in your bidding.
