    Colts made in 1986 during the strike

    Happy new year Colt Forum members,

    i was looking up the SN of my SAA. Colt says it was made in 1986, the burgundy box has the 150 years of colt craftsmanship on it. The listing of SN range on one of the threads on the forum does not list a range for 1986. Given that I have a few questions:
    1) Were SAAs made in the custom shop during that period?
    2) Were they made by replacement workers?
    3) how many SAA made in 1986 - which model was made the least 1911, python, SAA etc...


    Thanks in advance for your inputs

    Not all of Colt employee’s before the Strike were Craftsmen...Not all replacement workers were unskilled...AND some employee’s today could use a refresher course...

    Quality inspection of individual pieces is paramount....

    Some damn nice Colts were produced during the strike years. There were also some truly hideous guns produced that should never have passed visual inspection...I've seen some Agents from the time period that, while perfectly functional, were quite horrible appearing.
