Colt Model 1895 .38 Colt New Army & Navy DA 3″ — Commercial

A scarce 1898 production Colt Model 1895 .38 Colt New Army & Navy Double Action, commercial production, 6-shot swing-out cylinder with unusual factory special-order 3″  barrel. Original finish and mechanically sound. Bore has nice rifling. Nice original grips. The serial number 11394X places it in the last few months of production 1898. Has the assembly number 794 stamped on the crane, inside frame, and on the cylinder latch. Three-line barrel roll mark with “95” as last patent date. Faded blue finish. The numbers and letters UHV 351 — possibly a police department   (Univerisity of Houston Victoria?) and rack number are lightly scratched in the left side, but otherwise a nice antique patina and 60%  overall blue finish. Has some nice original fire blue still visible on the sides of the hammer and trigger. The checkered black gutta percha grip panels are in amazingly good condition for their age. (EBAN-503)
