M1878 Colt Lightning revolver. Serial number 60342. 3-1/2" barrel. Unusual gun with no Colt markings, but definitely appears to be an original finish product of Colt by virtue of its quality and serial numbers. Has excellent nickel finish, worn slightly and bubbled slightly on the edges. Hard rubber grips show light wear and use with flattening to the checkering and scratches, but free of cracks and chips. Trigger will cycle action, but cylinder stop is weak and trigger does not spring back. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
