    Fantastic vagabond88! I'm always looking for new 1st generation serial numbers to add to my list. Just as a reminder, I'm only looking for the serial numbers of 1st generation Colt SAA revolvers owned by lawmen, outlaws, gunfighters, cowboys, soldiers, military units, famous mining companies, stagecoach or security companies, and other interesting people or organizations. Just because it was shipped to a particular retailer (like a hardware store in St. Louis) won't get it added to the list.

    I recommend that you get a letter from Colt to find something about your 1983 Colt SAA revolver. This will show when it was manufactured, the configuration when it left the factory (barrel length, finish, type of stocks, etc.), as well as the name of the place it was shipped. In most cases, the identity of the entity where the Cot was shipped will be a retail store or wholesaler; however, in some instances it may show the name and address of an individual. I suspect that this will be about all the information you'll be able to learn about a Colt SAA revolver made in 1983. I hope this helps.

    hi Ruster, I joined today in this forum. I recently purchased a Colt Single Action U.S. nickel plated serial number 50254. Can you let me have some news about this revolver? you can shoot with this old revolver? I can even send you some pictures.

    Many thanks and Regards

    Emilio (from Genoa Italy)

    Emilio, your Colt Revolver (SN: 50254) is listed on my registry of historic firearms (see link below). Congratulations! According to the book "Colt Cavalry & Artillery Revolvers, A Continuing Study" by Kopec & Fenn, after your gun was altered to the Artillery configuration, it was issued to Troop A, 1st Nevada Volunteer Cavalry. This unit was in the Philippines during the Philippine Insurrection from 2/4/1889 to 7/4/1902.

    Please use the lower section of the Colt SAA blog to post information about your Colt SAA revolver. Include some photos, as many of us would love to see your gun.

    Hello Rusty,

    Keith Cochran added 2 of the Colts in my collection to his book and they are already on your list. #4238 - a Rough Rider gun - #47614 - a New York Militia gun. (also in Kopec's book)

    Not sure if this one qualifies, but here it is: #10280 - Colt Letter - Factory Refurbish - United States Government Commanding Officer Springfield Armory, Springfield, Massachusetts, April 17, 1903 (200)
