I'm going to need your help to track down the Colt employee that should have his pay docked, with 157 years interest. It seems that one of the final assemblers got a bit sloppy. The attached picture of a Colt Navy is of an all-matching serial number gun, except that it isn't quite all matching. All the parts are matching, except the cylinder pin which almost matches...the last digit is a 4 instead of a 1. It seems somebody's eyes were fatigued when they assembled this and somebody didnt see the mismatch...the 4 can easily be mistaken for a 1, I suppose. Somewhere out there is the sister Navy with a similarly mis-atched part. Has anyone ever seen this type of mismatch before? Clearly it happened at the factory. ...pretty slim odds that somebody swapped the part years later and conveniently had a nearly matched serial number on it, don' you agree?
