        Colt New Service Old Model -- .44-40 caliber, 5 ½” barrel, factory nickel finish with fabulous period stag grips. According to the factory letter this early production New Service was originally shipped July 3, 1906 to the M. Hartley Company of New York City.The letter states this revolver left the factory in blue finish, it was obviously returned in later years to be refinished in nickel as denoted by the ampersand ‘ & ‘ stamp on the trigger guard. An incredible New Service revolver that was once owned and used by the famous 1920's-1940's movie star & early television personality, Buck Jones, and has descended from his estate. Buck Jones served in the military in his early life and was a popular actor in well over 100 Western movies. This great 'Old West' New Service was used by him in the Buck Jones Wild West & Round Up Days traveling show. The gun comes with a number of document copies, including a rich history of Buck Jones himself. It remains in exceptionally nice condition overall, the factory nickel finish is bright and clear with just little wear on the barrel and some minor age spots on the cylinder. The mechanical working order appears to be proper and correct in every respect and the bore & cylinder chambers are excellent. A really cool early production 'cowboy' New Service!! Please see the numerous photos for all details and close-up views of the finish condition. S/N 15525 (FFL or C&R Required)
