This is a Second Model Colt Richards Mason conversion to 44 Colt CF. The front sight has a gunsmith replaced adjustable dovetail front sight. Only trace of original blue remains. The markings are about very good and it even has over half of the cylinder scene. The mechanical is very good and tight. The bore is bright and shiny with strong rifling and has frosting and a spot of corrosion is a couple of spots. The serial number is 194970. All of the serial numbers match except for the butt and the grips are replacements. This will make a nice old west shooter.
