    Unfortunately, our records on 1851 Navys do not start until 1861, at about serial number 98,000.

    Hey Paul,
    If one is looking at a Colt that has Custom Shop label on its box, can/will Colt customer service or the Archive give out info on it, over the phone- or is an Archive letter required?
    Colt snubbies rule.

    Customer service will not have access to any archive records. We would typically need to do an archive research for the gun.

    Paul, when do you foresee having the 'COLTS FOR SALE" and the "SELL AND CONSIGN" parts of your website up and running. I keep checking back not wanting to miss something.

Any thoughts on what the earliest SN or date was? Thanks, Andy
    Andy. I have been collecting these for many years and can not remember seeing one that dates before 1926. This is the earliest shipping date 2" PPS that I have recorded:

    It will likely still be a couple of months. I will actually be posting an update soon about the business!

    Colt letter states "Special feature-Furnished with a B. P. Catch"

    Paul,
    Someone suggested I ask this question about a Special Feature mention on a Colt letter for 1896 shipped Colt.
    Thanks for any info you may be able to give.

    Special feature - Furnished with a B. P. Catch


    Curiosity has the best of me. I saw on a Colt letter : "Special feature - Furnished with a B. P. Catch" the gun was shipped in 1896 and has the modern style spring-loaded base pin release. Can someone explain what this is to a novice collector.

    tdennis,

    My guess is they are talking about the spring loaded base pin release and abbreviating it as "B.P. Catch" (base pin catch?). The only reason I can think of as to why they mentioned this feature specifically in the shipment is that the dealer specifically wanted to ensure that this was a feature on the revolvers, rather than possibly getting black powder frames (which, in my somewhat limited SAA knowledge, could have still been hanging around in 1896). I have only seen this specifically descrbied in one shipment I can think of, I think to Frank Budge in Miami?

    Paul,
    Thanks I suspect your guess is probably spot on.
