    Arizona shipped Colt single action research project.

    I thought it would be fun to try and document any Colt SAA or Bisley I came across on the internet or in books. If a copy of the letter is not listed then I am recording as much information as I can get. If anyone can add to my list of serial numbers please send me a PM of all the details or just reply. I will update this list as I find new entries.....Thanks!

    Trapdoor, I think you might find some in a book called Colts From Texas & the Old West by Jerry Hemphill.

    I have a colt saa that was sent to the copper queen mine at bisbee arizona 10/31/06. It WAS a 4 3/4" .44 wcf. Serial # 284019. This is verbal from a collector friends wife that got the info off martin hueber on the phone many years ago. The gun was later converted to .44 special with all colt parts and refinished and rebarreled to 7 1/2"s. Somewhere I had also read it was I think one of 6 or 10 guns in the shipment. I have to locate my notes to be sure of the # of guns in that shipment. The rebuild was done by old gun writer tommy bish and al capone who owned king gun works.

    Thanks pecosriver and feralmerril....I knew of your two but didn't have the s/n's and was hoping that you two would share them. Finding these is turning out to be more than I thought. Bisbee and Tucson were popular ship to destinations.
