The 1872 Colt Open Top Revolvers were produced simultanneously with the Richards and Richards-Mason Conversion. Between February 1872 until June 1873 a total of 7 000 pieces were produced. This Colt revolver is not a conversion but was produced for metallic cartridfges: the barrel cylinder and frame were made intentionally whereas parts such as the grip assembly and the internal components were adapted from the Navy `51 and the Army `60. Production stopped abruptly when the Single Action was introduced.
