    Mexican Colt SAA's

    I tried doing a forum search on these so called Mexican Colts, which were SAA copies made in Mexico or elsewhere in Europe, but had no luck.

    Does anyone have pictures and/or experience with these 'clones'?

    I'm just interested in info and some good lookin' pics

    I encountered several of these back in 1998...To the novice they can be passed off as authentic...But when presented with Serial Number 124 with a cross bolt base pin release and a lack of pinched Frame, they are easily debunked...Be very careful if looking at First Generation Colt SAA's, they are the most Faked of all Colt's..

    The last one I saw was at Cabela's - They had $125 on it. I think it lasted a couple of weeks at that price.

    On websites like iCollector and Gunbroker I saw a few of them trying to look for info. Depending on the condition they are estimated to sell for around 300-600$.

    One really interesting piece I saw, was a Colt (or copy) from President Carranza.
    still trying to figure out if its the real deal or not. The triggerguard looks iffy though. About 99% sure its a copy though, judging by the crude work.
    Thing came with a beautiful rig, too. Definitely want to have such a rig someday.

    here's the link: President Carranza's Colt SAA Mexican Revolution
    Sold for 5250 bucks...

    Yeah, those guns got used up pretty much. Seen plenty of action I assume. That and the quality of steel/iron they had at that time. If only these guns could talk...

    In the movie "Shane", if you look closely you can see that Joe Starrett's gun is a Mexican Colt.

    A little over fifty years ago I had a friend in Gettysburg who had an acquaintance in Mexico who sent him an occasional Mexican copy of the SAA. I saw a real Colt sent to my friend from Mexico that was nickel plated, engraved, with a 4 3/4 inch barrel, and .44 caliber. Don't remember what grips it had, or if it had a BP frame or not. I think I examined two of the Colt copies he had and was not at all impressed by their quality or the exactness of their similarity to the real article.

    Here is mine. It is in a glass display case so didn't photo too well. .38-40 caliber, ejector housing missing. You will notice in the 2nd photo that the triggerguard is of the 1875 Remington style. Thanks.
