Just picked this up today.  SN 4612.  VG condition with some light scuffing.  Any help on decoding this model?

Thanks Major and ccongrats Dusty: you got yourself a nice regular New Model Army, 3 variation (Colt-type naval scene on cylinder), probably 2nd sub-variation (if the cut for the sholderstock is present in the butt, if not it is the 3rd sub-variation).
Probably made 1966, by Fabriques d'Armes Unies de Liège in Belgium. As the next lower S/N we have # 4601 in our survey which has the plain, rebated cylinder (regular NMA, 1st variation) reported from Germany, and the next higher S/N we know is #4686, also a 3rd variation/2nd sub-variation like yours reported from the USA.
The * over S (sideways) is the mark of the inspector of the Liege Proof house. It stands for Charles Daenen who served there from 1952 to 1968. Please, check www.1960nma.org for further details and please, please, download the questionair from the website, complete it and mail it to me with the specifics of your rare Belgian Colt...because I want to include her into our survey (without your name, of course) if you are agreeable.
Please, feel free to send me a PM if you like to have further information.

Hi LJW:
Glad to be the member of another exclusive gun club!  Grin  This Centaure is in VG shape, but has an indexing problem.  I think the hand is too long, as it throws the chambers past the barrel any time you cock it hard.  An easy fix, I think.  I will get the survey form off to you soon.

On your way through the innards on your way to the hand, please check the bolt/trigger spring.
It may be cracked, or weak.

Regards,
