Colt Sheriff's .44 Special / .44-40 (C8006)
Colt Sheriff's .44 Special / .44-40 caliber revolver. Outstanding custom engraved 3rd generation dual cylinder model. Has full coverage scroll engraving with gold band inlays on the cylinder and barrel., gold plated screws, and genuine custom stag grips. The recoil shield is engraved with a depiction of a "dead mans hand" with aces and eights, with a "4" kicker, which is significant because the serial number of the gun is "41188" which represents the 4 card plus the pair of aces and pair of eights. The set is cased in a wooden presentation case and includes a miniature poker hand made up of the same cards as the serial number. A neat and unusual set, beautifully crafted.
