I look for these kind of guns myself! However, I will be the first to admit that my brain works different than most people so there is that. I like these kind of guns for 1. The price you can usually get them for. 2. There is always a mistery to them in my mind on how they got in the shape they’re in. Yes most likely, it is a mater of not taken care of by previous owner, but, what if it’s been “rode hard and put up wet”. What if it was some old cowboy that carried it everyday while ranching. What if it’s protected the previous owner from coyotes, snakes, etc. I know, that’s dreaming big for a pitted revolver, but they can’t talk so you never know. I have a couple guns that look like this, they ain’t pretty, but they function just fine. And all this to say…..it is a Colt, and it is cool!!

I have an old Spanish made smith and Wesson clone double action. Reason I bought it was because it is chambered in 32-20 to match my Winchester 73 in same caliber. It doesn’t run 100% and I had to do some tinkering to even get it to do that. I noticed one day inside the trigger guard, there were 3 notches cut in guard. Who knows what those mean. Could be men, could be rabbits, could be anything really. It is now one of my favorite old pistols for sure. But I would take a Colt too 😁
