    johnh: Glad you feel the way you do about your old Colts. When you mentioned Colts known to have been shipped to the Copper Queen Mine and also US marked ones you moved these guns into the category...

    I don't know where to start on this B.S. About the only thing Sebastian states above that I can agree with is the fact that third generations are over priced. History is as history happened with any...

    I think my first post on this forum was on this same subject starting with the words (sort of) "It's a .45 Colt, not a .45 Long Colt". It was a mistake. The thing ran to about seven pages just like...

    CraigC is correct about who developed the .357 and the .44 Magnum cartridges. Elmer reportedly didn't even know about the .44 Magnum until Smith & Wesson sent him one of the first Model 29's...

    I think the brown hard rubber grips look better than the "correct" black color ones.

    You can still go camping in a Ford truck (What else?) but you can't take a new Colt New Service along, at least not since about 1944. A shame. All those in the photos were larger than life and that...

    Well no, they didn't face the Moro's, but they did face the Zulus, the fanatical "Fuzzy Wuzzy" in the Sudan, and the tribes in the Khyber Pass region, all of which would have equaled the Morros for...

    Sounds as if we have an an Anglophobe here. The ..38 S&W is not a "Bastard cartridge". It ain't the best man stopper for sure, but I bet there a lot more than a few Axis soldiers sleeping under the...

    OK, racking a slide usually requires the use of both hands,.........not good. You can get a Peacemaker out of a holster and cock the hammer a lot quicker than racking a slide and use only one hand to...

    That screw through the thumb safety is there to lock it on the off position. All, or most, Colt .380 and .45 autos had their safety catches deactivated. Department didn't like manual safeties....

    Why, oh why, didn't I just collect stamps, Coke bottles, or at least a cheaper gun make? I mean does Mossberg have a custom shop? Colt really does its best to alienate everyone who wants to champion...

    We really shouldn't compare racial attitudes of the 19th century with those of the 21st. Things were simply different then. Britain was/is a small country when compared to many others. Yet during the...

    Looks like an early frame (US Property?........not marked a such but no "C" prefix either) with a later manufactured slide.

    I have the exact SAA you just bought. I got mine new in 1979 and have shot it a lot. Although the gun has a few manufacturing flaws, none serious, the quality of the nickel plating is extraordinary....

    I don't know why the front sight height was increased on the SAA circa 1911, but it was not because of the "increased velocity of smokeless powder". The 40 grain BP standard load for the .45 with 250...

    We all know that Colt has been in trouble for years, but to read about those problems in an article done in 1956 is still depressing. I am old enough to remember the birth of "GUNS" magazine and read...

    I think 1941 was the last year that new 1911 models were blued and also the first year that they started Parkerizing them under government contract.

    I had a 1963 2nd. generation cylinder bolt spring break. A 1979 3rd generation main and bolt spring both broke. No broken springs on a 1956 early 2nd. generation. Needless to say the 2009 3rd...
