    Brand New Surprise

    Rainy day here but I ventured out to pick up a used 22 revolver at a LGS. When I walked in the owner, knowing what I like said he had something to show me. This one was QR coded Sept 18, as I unwrapped it I was hoping the case color wouldn't be as bad as I've seen lately and happily they were quite nice. Naturally the 22 revolver I was picking up will have to wait awhile because I wanted this Colt NOW. Getting home I wiped the factory grease off a little and snapped some quick photos.
    One thing that was strange was the serial number, the 2 SAAs I bought from this dealer last year were in the S75000A range, this new one was S85000A range. Now Colt could not have made 10,000 SAAs in less than a year or am I missing something? A large gun shop near this one hasn't had a new SAA in 3/4 years yet this small gun/pawn has had 4 in the last year. They must have a distributor that really likes them. It's good to see Colt making a run in my favorite barrel length.

    There was one on gunbroker in that range...Seemed like a huge jump , but I can't imagine why they would be holding a block of serial numbers....Unless Talo has em all.😂

    Congrats! Super nice looking SAA and one that I would love to have. So..did you get it for Colt MSRP or have to pay the pawn shop bump?
