Excellent John Warren Engraved Second Generation Colt Single Action Army Revolver
This is an excellent example of a John Warren signed and engraved Single Action Army Revolver. Blade front and notch rear sights on a barrel with the one line Hartford address on the top and caliber markings on the left side. The smokeless powder frame is marked with the two line, three date patents next to the circled Rampant Colt on the left side. The revolver has a crescent-style ejector. Matching numbers on the grip straps, with the assembly number "536" on the loading gate.

Burst patterns are featured on the recoil shield, loading gate, backstrap and the ends of the cylinder flutes, and a panel on the backstrap suitable for inscriptions. The front of the frame is signed by the engraver ("John Warren eng"). Fitted with checkered hard rubber grips, with Rampant Colt logos at the tops and American Eagles at the bottoms.
