MODEL 1873 COLT SINGLE
ACTION PISTOL TOOL:
A U.S. Army issue combination tool for the Model 1873
Single Action Colt Pistol, this “L” shaped tool
incorporates the two screwdrivers necessary to dismount
and maintain this famous pistol.
Measuring 3 1/16” on
the long leg and 1 1/16” on the shorter leg, this
specimen is in like-new, unissued condition, with an
original bright blued finish. See Gun Tools, Their
History and Identification - Volume 1, by Shaffer,
Rutledge, and Dorsey, page 86 for more information.
Becoming almost impossible
to find on the loose and no longer available from any of
the old large suppliers of gun tools, these early Colt
tools are quite scarce. (1013) $150
