    The Colt Boa is often thought of as a special version of the Colt Python revolver but, in fact, the Boa was a cross between a Python and a Trooper Mk V. This means that the Boa features the improvements of the Colt Trooper Mk V, including the improved smoother trigger with its shorter lock-time. The Colt Boa is a rare revolver and much sought after by serious collectors of Colt revolvers. The Boa was made in a limited run of only 1,200 revolvers for the Lew Horton Distributing Company in Massachusetts: 600 were made with 4″ barrels, and then 600 with 6″ barrels. The Lew Horton Distributing Company then sold the revolvers through their own outlets.

    It's certainly a fine looking wheel gun, but that's machine gun money.

    And supposedly they are consecutively numbered. Since the value of these would go up if you had the pair I expect these auctions to go sky high.

    Looks straight enough to be machined, also looks like it could be a plate to work on the internals
