    Thanks Dogface. I have this saved on my computer and I use it all the time. How can we get one up to 2016 at least?

    Our Forum member, What would you say, posted the following information on latest Colt SAA SN's a short while ago. Here is the important part of that post:

    S75537A is the serial for the P1850
    Colt said their date on it was April 29th 2017.

    This shows about 10,000 SAA's have been sold since 2011. That is on average about 1667 SAA's per year.
    Do the math to get good estimates beyond 2011.

    For what it's worth, last spring I sold S75121A, a P1850, to a forum member and Colt told me it was from Aug 2014.

    I have Serial number S63402A and it is stamped on the white sleeve with a date of June 27th 2014. Of course you never know what colt does.

    So... if 1978 ended with SA01001 and 1979 started with SA13000 when was my SA106xx built?

    I have SAA with S/N SA65184 which should be from late 1982 according your list. Now I received the Archive letter which states date of shipment as February 18. 1986. Funny, since this is my birthday even when I'm a little older.
    Question now ist, was that gun lying around for more than three years before it was send to Germany or is the S/N listing not correct.
