Rare c.1875 Colt Firearms Broadside
$1,250.00
Front: Features the "Colt's New Model Metallic Cartridge Revolving Pistol", aka the Colt Single Action Army. Also, a complete description of the features on this revolver and also disassembly info. It's well known this is one of the most collectible Colts and an important part of this rare broadside. Below is an illustration of the "Colt's New .22 Pistol Seven Shot." This is an early 1st model .22 New Line. The company name is prominent at the bottom of the page. 
Back: Featured in full size are the illustrations of the other four calibers of "Colt's New Breech Loaders".  The calibers are:.30, .32, .38, and .41. We know them as New Lines. Original prices range from $10.00 to $13.50. Correct cartridges are also shown. This broadside is the real deal. Strictly ORIGINAL. When held to the light, it shows many pinholes and one small tape repair. Crisp, bright and not faded. A delight for any Colt collector of 19th Century weapons. Acquired from a 60 year collection. Remember, this is an actual broadside issued from Colt Firearms and NOT a newspaper or magazine ad. (Cat. #18600)
