    Colt SAA 32-20

    I've owned this 1915 32-20 for a number of years now. It's a really beautiful looking gun - lots of blue left. It would be a really nice condition example, but for two items. The first is the little blade sight that someone installed in the rear of the frame. Fortunately, it fits rather snugly and follows the contours of the gun, so it doesn't really detract from the overall look.

    The other item, which is odd, is the earlier black-powder era hammer. I could see someone replacing a part on an SAA with a later-model part (i.e., what was available at the time of repair), but an earlier model replacement seems odd. I wonder if it was a left-over part at the time the gun was assembled. Anyway, it's still a rather nice looking piece. I didn't pay a whole lot for it, but I've never really had a good sense of its market value, given the two items I mentioned. Anyone have an idea what it might be worth? Thanks.

    Hopalong, that's a good looking old Colt. I like it. How does it shoot?

    Thanks for sharing. I have no idea of value, but I think I'd value it highly as a shooter and an interesting gun.
    Any idea of who did the work?

    I've got a pair of stags that could be a twin to the ones on your gun,they are on a 1903 4 3/4 44/40,love the color.A question for u guys that r good on this "evil machine"-the colt is lettered & the backstrap is engraved w/the same initials as in the letter but it really don't explain much-it says, Ex. Nat. Mex. would any of u know any back ground on the mexican RR's?

    Thanks, everyone. Frank, I wish I knew more about the gun. The hammer is what really has me curious.I haven't shot the gun, but I'm sure it would do well. The bore is excellent.Tim

    Put it on Gunbroker with a starting bid of 1900.00 and expect 22-2400.00
