    SAA Revolvers Damaged in Fire

    This pair of Colt Single Action Army revolvers was damaged in a house fire and in need of a good restoration. No problem! Here at Custom Shop, we will do our magic on these guns and return them to the owner looking just like the day they came from the Colt factory.


    In a couple of days we will post several photographs showing details of the fire damage to these guns.


    Below is a video of both of the damaged guns.

    Nice, but somewhat of an obnoxious title. And they seem a bit to 'good' to have been in a housefire. Not saying they haven't been in a fire, but take a look at this:

    This gun has been in a housefire, too, and it looks a bit more crispy.

    The grips look in good shape to have been in a fire.

    Not much of a fire. If the grips are still intact and on the gun, not much hurt there. I don't have a problem refinishing beater third gen guns. Why the tease on the finished work?

    It doesn't look like these guns were so much IN the fire as they were in a house that was on fire. Maybe a little smoke damage and what appears to be fire extinguisher/water damage rather than actual fire damage.

    Those appear to be smokeless frames. How has the heat affected the hardness of the steel in the cylinder and frame?

    If they didn't get hot enough to do any more damage than that to the stocks they should be OK. Most of damage appears to be smoke and water.

    If those are the original stocks, it doesn't appear the fire was too close to the guns. Maybe the fire retardant got on the guns for the staining. The guns I have observed to be in the heat of the fire came out one color when the soot was cleaned off and that was all grey.
