    Nope, not a Thunderer, that's a nice Single Action Army in 41 Long Colt.

    My opinion is free, and worth every penny of it.

    The Thunderer was the common name given to Colts' Model 1877 double action revolver in 41 Long Colt. The Model 1877 when chambered in 38 Long Colt was commonly called the Lightning, and in 32 Colt was the Rainmaker. Google for images and you'll easily see the differences; the 1877 kind of has the appearance of a slightly smaller SAA with a "birds head" grip frame.

    Best regards,

    Rastargate, welcome to Coltforum.

    You REALLY know how to enter a room.

    That is a very nice Colt Single Action Army revolver, the Peacemaker, the gun that won the west - in a somewhat scarce and very potent caliber.

    Welcome to the forum. That is a very uncommon SAA from 1892. The very FIRST thing you need to do is get a Colt letter to see if it was factory engraved and letters with pearl stocks. If it is authentic, you may be looking at a five figure Colt. DO NOT accept any offers before you get a Colt letter. Yours is very close to the time Colt changed from the "black powder" frame to the transverse pin. If it's factory engraved a letter will cost you =/- $300.00 and worth every penny. I'm gonna guess that it's factory engraved with a silver plated finish and mother of pearl grips in .41 Colt....cha-CHING!

    It also looks like something may be broken inside due to the forward position of the trigger. Not too uncommon but it should be repaired and we have the best in the business on the forum like Dave Lanara and Jim Martim.
