This is a 2 ½” barrel Colt Thunderer with an Etched Panel barrel. This is all matching numbers and 27886 was shipped in 1880. The mechanical function is very good, crisp and tight and the bore is very good and shiny with strong rifling. There is a small amount of light frosting but still very good condition. It retains 82% all original nickel finish. There are still fire blue screws. The grip checkering shows some ware but overall this is a solid 41 Colt Thunderer.
