1873 Colt S/A

” Relic “


This is one of the coolest ” Relic’s”  I’ve ever offered for saleIt still has 4 chambers loaded .  It appears that when it was fired there was an obstruction at the muzzle end ,maybe some mud.  The result was the barrel blew open at the muzzle and also blew out 2 cylinder chambers and the top strap. Possibly knocking off the ejector housing at the same time. Two of the blown cylinders still have the cartridge heads in place.  While one of them still has the bullet head also in place.    This was certainly a disaster for the shooter and may have cost him his life  .
