A really quick search on the internet reveals that there is a David P Davison listed in the 1940 Census. He was born in Nebraska in 1907 and resided in Wilson, Owyhee, Idaho in 1940. Of course, he could have been in Idaho 9 yrs previously in 1931.
Indeed, he had a 9 yr old son in 1940 and a 24 year old wife. Maybe both married young and he settled there in 1931 and purchased a used SAA revolver as he started a family there.
Nice work mrcvs!Wilson in Owyhee Co, Idaho is just a few miles from me. Your gun and your story but by the look or those grips David's would be mine
That may be top-dollar but the colors do look nice and the gun looks right except for an altered front sight.

I think someone used to shoot this revolver a lot. You can see a loss of blue inside the triggerguard from the moving trigger-finger. And it was no real "cowboy colt" as those show marks on the butt and here are none. People used them as hammers and alle my old SAAs that are not above 80% blue have those marks.
You never pay to much for a gun, but you may have just bought it to early.
I don't know much but at least I know that much.
