    General Pershing's SAA

    Here is a link to a SAA that is being sold that once belonged to General Pershing when he was just a young 2nd Lt. Pretty nice.

    I would figure this would be sold thru one of the well known auction houses not gunsamerica

    I'm no Pershing authority, but do know that he used the Colt 1901 .38 while he was a young officer assigned to the Philippines, favoring it so much he ordered them up for his men while in charge of the Mexican Punative Expedition and again during World War I.

    Perhaps the reason the gun's in such good shape is that he never used it.

    And yeah, that's been up on GA for a long time now. And there are four or five auction houses that specialize in such historically important arms.

    Of course, $106 grand is a lot of money.

    That Single Action was on Gunbroker 2 or 3 times a while back; the last time it was on Gunbroker it was discussed here on the Colt Forum, here's the link. Caveat Emptor!
