    45 Colt was the original chambering and was and always will be the favorite caliber in a Single Action Colt unless you view it as a collector and are looking for the rarest combination. It is an old...

    22Flattop liked post by Mikebiker On thread : Value thoughts: 1885 engraved nickel w/ ivory stocks & Colt letter
    Google some pictures of factory engraved Colts from this time period and look at the differences. Most will show some age and have genuine old appearance. Even at first glance the gun you posted...

    If you are considering buying the colt as an original factory engraved single action I would tread very lightly if it is being sold as original. You wouldn't have a 45 colt barrel marking on an...

    Seriously? I get the gun is not for everyone but less than $1000? NH doesn't publish prices but I can throw some at you: Smoke Nitride finish-$450. It's a proprietary finish involving melonite,...

    Don't know how many watch "The Last Alaskans", but one of the guys on there shoots a well worn Model 1895 Winchester in .35 WCF.

    22Flattop liked post by Jersey Kid On thread : Ten Sleep WY
    There are several stories as to how this small town got its name. One story says the name Ten Sleep came from the Indians’ reference to a ford across the creek, on the old Bridger Trail, as being 10...

    If I were looking for a "basic training clone" I guess it would have to be an M14 wannabe. (Best rifle I've ever handled.)

    22Flattop liked post by throck3 On thread : Mexico Shipped Colt SAA 1907
    Looks like a simple rack number to me. With the "REP. MEX." in the same cold stamps on the bottom of the grip strap, it leads me to think it was part of a group of revolvers used by Federales or...

    It is a pretty neat box, I've seen one like it before but can't remember where. Be interested to see what's actually in the box, if it has the same style case, bullet and cannelure as the factory...

    It is indeed a factory gun and might have been sold through Lew Horton Distributing. They shipped in two separate batches, 5 units in 1986 and 14 units in 1991. I'm guessing yours might be one of the...
