If you can get that one, you are my hero. These are impossible to date for the mere mortal.
Made early in 1895, with 6,198 made that year. I am now your hero, you mere mortal. A Hotchkiss? I'm green with envy! I wanna rummage through your gunsafe and see what else you've been hiding.
Have you shot the Colt yet? Mine is ready for a test fire. Ordered a Uberti screw set for it after I was told it would work,... it didn't, metric threads.
