Summary: The description, specs, photos and MSRP for the USFA Sheriff revolvers.

Manufacturer’s Description

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.
