Your's is much nicer than mine, which was my Papaw's. It was manufactured in 1897. We used to play with it as kids, spinning the cylinder and generally abusing it. I ordered some parts from Numrich had to be hand fitted plus new repro grips. It at least is in mechanical order with a nice brown patina from being wrapped in an oily T-shirt in a zip-lock bag for 20 years. Bore is of course in sad shape.

This Colt's revolver was, by the way, the first ever to feature swing-out cylinder.
