    The Colt Lightning Rifle was a slide /pump-action rifle manufactured by Colt from 1884 to 1904. Colt made the Lightning Rifle in three different frame sizes, to accommodate a wide range of cartridges. Its profile somewhat resembles the pump-action rifles made by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company and Remington Arms. The large-frame Lightning with barrel lengths of 22” or 28”, also called the "Express Model" were manufactured between 1887 and 1894. Only 6,500 large frame Express rifles were manufactured. The Lightning was adopted for use by the San Francisco Police Department. This is a superb, very rare, original example of the large frame Colt Lightning ‘Express Model’ rifle in 38-56-255 Winchester calibre. It has a 28” blued octagonal barrel and measures 46 ¾” overall. The barrel's bore has just light staining consistent with age and well defined rifling. It’s all original American Walnut wood work is excellent and undamaged. The neck of the stock and slide have chequered panels. The underside of the stock has a void German Silver roundel inlaid. The gutta percha butt plate has the embossed Rampant Colt trade mark roundel. The rifle has the correct full length tube magazine. The top of the barrel has crisp Colt Hartford address detail and Patent dates to Feb 22.87 (illustrated inset in image 2). The barrel has calibre detail ’38-56-255’. The frame is charcoal blued with loading port on the right side & the Rampant Colt trade mark on the left. The rifle is serial number ‘5353’ one of the 6500 produced and dates its manufacture to 1891. It is fitted with fire blued buck horn rear sight, dovetail hinged hood fore sight & flip up micro peep sight. Its pump action and firing mechanisms work perfectly.
