Thank you , in the meantime do I lightly give it a small wipe of oil ? Or store it dry ?Welcome to Gun and Game. Form across the lakes in Ohio.
There are a few fellows around here, that know those old Colts. A lot of people are form different time zones. Give it a day tops and I am sure you will have plenty of replies.
My self I know how to work and care for them but not much as far as Identification, year and such.
If that was brought in back in the 30s I am going to guess it might just be an original. I don't think they were making repros back then. If there are other markings on it, might be worth sending detailed pics to Colt.Well it’s only a matter of time till Canadian govt takes what’s left away of our guns . I might try and post some pics of gun from different angles. I was told some repros can look just as good as an authentic Colt. This was the gun I and my cousins used to wear in a holster walking around grandpas house as toddlers . Came my way as pure luck. If fake it sure feels good in my hand when watching ( the outlaw Josey Whales) or ( Pale Rider ). Grandpa once owned a general store in Watertown Alberta back in the 30s . This and many other artifacts were brought in by the First Nations at that time in trade for goods. I will post pics ASAP . Could be a repro , maybe someone can give an educated opinion . thank you.

There were some American outlaws that came north into the Waterton area back in the day. You should do some heavy research. What you might find could be real interesting.Grandpa once owned a general store in Watertown Alberta back in the 30s .
