Default (Unknown Revolver) Crusty Colt 1917 New Service?



Got a new treat for y'all

This is (I think, please help me verify) a 1917 Colt New service which was originally a .45ACP revolver using moon clips.... I think..... not really sure, I suppose it could also be a S&W but the internals look kind of Coltish to me.

She was uncovered by a guy who was digging a new foundation for his house in Vermont, I wish I could get more info but the guy who found her is dead as she has been hanging on the wall of a gunshop as a curiosity for a very, very long time.

This is going to really push the limits of what can be restored.

Oh and subscribe to my channel, it helps keep me motivated and working on projects

It's a Colt. Could be a martial or commercial in a number of calibers, but it is most likely a 1917 US, judging by the barrel length.
S&W sideplate would be on the right side of frame.
