Summary: The description, specs, photos and MSRP for the USFA Sheriff revolvers.
In 1882, the first ejectorless or what is now known as the Sheriff’s Model left the Colt armory with a 2.5″ barrel. The vast majority of Sheriffs (also called Storekeepers) were made with 3.5″ or 4″ barrels. The short barrel was designed to speed up the draw, and to make the gun a bit easier to carry, or to conceal. However, some Sheriffs were manufactured with 7.5″ barrels.
Today, USFA makes the Sheriff’s model in a variety of barrel lengths to suit your taste (see “The Specs” below). It’s made to the original design using black powder-style frames, but it’s built to handle the modern cartridges of today. Available grips include hard-rubber, stag and a variety of ivories and walnuts. It features a V-notch rear sight and a blade front sight. It’s finished in Bone Case and Dome blue, or nickel.
Options include engraving, fancy gold and nickel plating, and checkered grips.
