GR79-0721- 5203, Colt M-1873 SA Action Shipped to Vernal, Utah. 4 3/4 inch barrel in .45 Colt, #169xxx matching with about 45% nickel, where the nickel has fallen off is a very dark stained patina. The gun letters as a blued gun but the nickel is no question a period done job and looks even looks original. Dealers would refinish guns and that is probably what happened with this gun. Fine grips with excellent fit, crisp tight action. The bore is crisply rifled with fine surface residue. I have not seen many guns that were shipped to Vernal Utah. The gun was shipped to W. P. Colthorp & Company. After a little digging I found this shop was right in the middle of town, on the corner of Main and Vernal Ave. I even found a couple pics of it that I included. Utah was certainly part of the Wild West, near Outlaw trail and Brown’s Park. This was a hideout that outlaws used that was in Utah but Near Wyoming and Colorado. It was a good place for outlaws to evade the law and not have to travel too far to get out of the State. Browns Park is about 30 miles north of Vernal. In all likelihood, Vernal so the likes of Butch Cassidy, the McCarthy Gang and the Wild Bunch pass through town. Subsequently, members of the community would want to be well armed with a man killing Colt SA to protect themselves. The gun was shipped in 1897, and would have been right in the middle of some of the most interesting history of the Wild West. Fine overall.
