Colt Single Action used by James Arness in the award winning television series, “Gunsmoke”. What TV Colt revolver could be more iconic than Marshal Matt Dillon's? We can't think of one, and this one was well-used by Arness.

Frame is *S/N 317234, .45 Long Colt caliber, 7 1/2 inch barrel. It would have been originally blued and case color finish. Ultra stag 2-piece grips. Condition: good bore, scattered light oxidation, complete refinish, mechanically very good, grips are excellent. As with a lot of the Stembridge guns the numbers do not match. The backstrap and trigger guard are #184405.
