Looking for some info on a colt 1878 DA . It has nickel plating, 3 1/4 in barrel,black rubber grips. Anyone know if colt ever reproduced these?
They've never been reproduced, but that barrel length isn't the norm and a letter from Colt would answer any questions you would have regarding it's original configuration when manufactured. If originally sent out that way from Colt it would be considered rare. Does it have an ejector rod? You didn't mention caliber and a photo would be nice. This is my 1878 Colt 44-40 from the 1880's.
