1889 US Navy Colt Model 1889 .38

US Navy Colt model 1889 .38 double action revolver. Revolver features blued finish, walnut grips, and matching serial numbers on frame, cylinder release lever, barrel and crane. “C” inside star ( A.P. Casey– A Colt Sub-Inspector) inspectors mark stamped on left side of frame above grip, on crane, and bottom of barrel. “T” in triangle stamp on cylinder release lever. Bottom of barrel reads: “3567,” “P,” and “C” inside star. Bottom of right grip panel stamped with illegible marking, appears to read: “ISI.” Barrel address reads: “Colt’s PT. F.A. MFG. Co. Hartford CT USA Patented Aug. 5. 1884. Nov. 6. 88. Mar. 5. 95.”  With the “95” patent date, it is likely that this revolver was re-arsenalized by the U.S. Navy, and a new barrel installed. The U.S. Navy purchased 5000 of these revolvers, serial numbers in that order ranged from 1-5000. This serial number is “3567.” No visible import markings. Note: The gent that I bought this from described it as a “.38 Special”, but I have not yet checked ut to see if it was altered to .38 Special, or if it is still chambered in .38 Long Colt. Barrel Length: 6″.  Serial Number: 3567 | Condition: Very good. Bright bore, with good rifling and some oxidation marks. Metal surfaces show approximately 80% original finish, with some holster wear, and surface scratches. Grips show some handling wear. Mechanically excellent. (EBCS-397)
