This is a very rare and collectible revolver. This is a 1971 Colt Border Patrol revolver, .357 Magnum caliber with a 4" barrel. The action is as smooth as my 4" Python. There were only 5,356 2nd issue blued Border Patrol revolvers made by Colt from 1970 thru 1975. This one was made in 1971. It comes with a Colt letter showing that it was part of a shipment of 75 Border Patrol pistols delivered to Texas DPS Headquarters in Austin on October 28, 1971. The revolver is in excellent condition and has a plum cylinder release due to the bluing salts reaction with the metal composition and time (common occurrence). This revolver has beautiful Colt walnut grips and is just stunning. It has the DPS control/inventory number stamped on the right side above the trigger. I'm asking $1300 for this as I will never find another or be able to replace it. I am open to trading for pinned and recessed S&W revolvers as long as I don't have it yet.

The Colt is Sold. Thanks, Earl


I need to do a FTF in the North Dallas area (I am in Plano). First to say they take it, gets it. I do have it cross listed. I can be reached via email at elbattey@verizon.net , PM, or text me at 214 - 471 - 79four1

Thanks,
Earl
