Open Top Conversion

Open Top Conversion

Although it appears to be a conversion, the 1871-72 Open Top model was Colt’s® first revolver specifically manufactured to fire a centerfire cartridge by incorporating the loading gate in the frame. Since Colt® did not use percussion revolver parts, the revolver was manufactured as an entirely new model, first with Navy-sized grips and later with Army-sized grips. All Open Top revolvers come with a case-hardened forged steel frame, round barrel with front blade sight, modern ejector rod, and a rear sight notch on the rear of the barrel. The Navy version includes a brass backstrap and triggerguard with a smaller Navy grip. The Army version includes a steel backstrap and triggerguard with a larger Army grip. Requires an FFL dealer to ship.
