Hi guys,

long story short. Won this pistol on GunBroker. One of those times I just threw out an arbitrary monetary price…. And won.

My knowledge on these 1892 line of service revolvers, is reluctantly very limited.

For the price of $441, can’t imagine it was a bad deal.

Please find below listing:


Also attached is my Blue Book Gun value guide.

Any thing noticeable about this revolver? Why the 1902 date (pic #6)? Or, the weird proof (pic #5) mark top right of frame?

Thanks for any thoughts.

J.T.T is the stamp of General John T. Thompson, of Thompson SMG fame.
He was the government inspector at Colt from 1896 to 1902.
The 1902 stamp is most probably a rebuild or upgrade mark, not a date made.

You can get a lot more info on the Colt Forum.....One member literally wrote the standard reference on the Colt New Army & Navy models.
