Description

The Colt Single Action Army Engraved Sampler Pair, crafted in 1982, is prestigious in the annals of Colt’s storied history. This set, featuring two sequentially numbered revolvers, was specially produced for Stan Newman, who was the manager of Colt’s Parts Department at the time. These pieces are celebrated not only for their historical significance but also for the mastery they display in gun engraving, showcasing the talents of factory master engravers Dennis Kies and George Spring.

Each Colt Single Action Army in the set is distinctly marked by the artisan who crafted it. The one engraved by Dennis Kies is distinguished by the inscription “KIES COLT ENGRVR” on the right side of the butt, and it is finished with gold accents, earning it the designation “gold/A.” George Spring’s contribution, referred to as “silver/B,” features similar markings and is adorned with silver finishes. Both guns incorporate black powder-style frames and heat-blued small parts, highlighting traditional techniques and materials. Additionally, the back strap of each revolver is decorated with a unique 150th-anniversary commemorative design, further linking these firearms to Colt’s rich heritage.

The artistry extends beyond the Colt Single Action Armys themselves. The left grip of each gun bears the names of other renowned Colt engravers, serving as a tribute to the lineage of craftsmanship within the company. This acknowledgment threads a connection through the generations of artisans who have contributed to Colt’s reputation.

These Colt Single Action Armys are housed in an exquisite hardwood display case, enhancing their presentation and preservation. The case features a hand-engraved silver plaque that reads “Colt/Engraving/Sampler,” signifying the unique nature of these firearms. Inside, the case is French-fitted with a plush blue velveteen lining, cradling each revolver securely and elegantly. Completing the ensemble, each gun comes with its matching box, ensuring that the set remains a prime example of Colt’s commitment to quality, precision, and artistic beauty in firearm design and manufacturing. This pair not only embodies the legacy of Colt but also serves as a collector’s piece, representing a high point in the craft of gun engraving.
