    Did I screw up?

    I ordered an SAA, 4-3/4, .44-40. LGS calls, gun is finally here. Open the box and instead of case and blue ordered, the gun is grand and glorious nickel, just like the box label says it should be.

    Shinier than a new dime, it really is a pretty gun...BUT

    ... told them sent it back. Did I screw up?

    I like the blue and case better! Also, that fit on the grip frame/grip of the bright one is terrible. Based on it alone, I would send it back.

    Now you decide.





    Me. I would do the right thing. I can enjoy pirate lore. But I am no pirate.

    It sounds like they screwed up. I don't know anything about 3rd Gen SAA's, but historically Blue & Case is Standard, while Nickel is priced higher.

    Same thing happened to me.
    LGS received a nickel 4 3/4" .45 Custom Shop instead of the blue/case I wanted.
    No problem.
    Asked them to order the correct one and gladly gave full retail for the nickel...
    In 2009.
    Never looked back.
    In fact when the blue one arrived they shipped a matching pair.
    Bought them both.

    Well, Old Tanker, you should have called as you know I am a fool for those gaudy nickle plated pimp killers. I bet I could whack a really big pimp with that one but it is gone now.
