A single-action, civilian revolver, among the first 150 produced by Colt, sold for $284,410 at an auction for collectible firearms held earlier this month in Dallas, Texas. A signature-series auction featuring collectible guns fetched more than $1.8 million on December 9. Heritage Auctions hosted the event that fired up more than 1,100 bidders to compete for the rarest Colt revolvers known to exist. “We’re pleased with how bidders responded to the array of rare Colt revolvers,” said Clifford Chappell, director of Arms & Armor at Heritage.
