Colt Lightning .38 Colt (AC168)
Manufactured in 1881. Barrel is 3.5". Bore is good with fair rifling and corrosion in the grooves. The action works properly. The grips are mother of pearl with the right side being cracked and mended. Metal has areas of pitting with an old nickel plating that is beginning to flake. In spite of such a non-glowing description the revolver has good eye appeal and it works; which is a big bonus on any lightning.
