    Interesting Custer era SAA on gunbroker

    Expensive but the Kopec letter shows a pretty interesting history:

    The “AS IS - No refund or exchange” would bother me on a Colt that theoretically is well documented and not cheap! I’d want to have the opportunity, as Kopec himself suggests on his website, to send the Colt back to him to make sure nothing had been changed on the gun since he last saw it, even if it was theoretically in September 2010, and to make sure that the evaluation letter was really his.

    As far as the price if the Colt is exactly what it is represented to be; I guess that would be up to the buyer, but since it can only be documented to be of “Custer era” parts and not “Custer issue” parts; I personally wouldn’t pay that much.

    The whole story is outstanding and a great example of Kopec's research. That is a real Collector's gun, in my opinion.

    I'm not much of a grammar nazi, but it's cavalry, dammit. Calvary is a hill near Jerusalem.

    Have seen at least two or three of those Custer Little Big Horn Colts go at Julia's (auction) years ago but can't recall how much.I do remember a few Springfield Trap Doors and one Win 66 that I held (preview-with a nice Portsmouth PD watching) that went for 645K.

    Always thought it was so interesting that they could go back and prove that several guns where at the battle from the bullets found.

    Wow.....other than the serial number on the frame it sure doesn't have much going for it for $12,500.

    I owned that gun for several years. It is a nice factory refinished gun but the price is about 3 times what i sold it for 8 years ago. It hasn't been altered of fooled with since i sold it. 6312 is from Lot 6, a possible Custer range issue. Should the triggerguard # 4286 have been on the frame it might generate a bit more interest. Kopec (IMO) pretty much says it's a 2nd Cav issue. With that letter trying to tie in with Custer is pretty thin.
    5100 and 5128 are documented Custer guns. What does that make my UNdocumented 5113 worth? Still just speculation with out documentation. JUST MY OPINION!
