COLT MEDIUM FRAME LIGHTNING SRC; Previously in the collection of Alberto de Quintana. I personally bought this gun from his great-great grandson along with the entire collection that was offered for sale. The Colt was a present from the General Governor of Cuba in 1889 where he was “Intendente General”. 20 inch barrel Carbine chambered in 44 WCF caliber. Overall condition of the gun is approximately 75% blue starting to tone and plum to a brownish plum patina but still good blue showing. Bore has good rifling with scattered pits. Muted case colors remain on hammer. Original sights. Crisp action. Original wood has a few handling mars but generally VG+ with most varnish remaining. Complete with saddle ring and sling swivels. This is a historically significant gun.
ANTIQUE $ 12,500.
