    Colt SAA Pinto???

    Tried doing a search but couldnt find anything. I have a chance to buy a SAA Pinto (I assume 3rd gen) 44spl 5 1/2" unfired but no box. What are they worth?

    $1500-1600.00? Not the most desirable Colt in my opinion.

    Each to his own but any make or model of a pinto gun has always turned me completely off. Different strokes for different folks.

    I first saw these for sale in 1982 Shotgun News ads where Colt put leftover nickel cylinders in blued guns to use up parts as they supposedly fazed out SAA production. I bought one a few years ago but sold it. I always liked the finish contrast. Unfortunately mine looked like it was color case hardened, polished, and assembled by Stevie Wonder. Mine was used and was $1050. Now they usually have astronomical asking prices. I think there were around 434 of them made. And a few but with blued flutes. Sometimes rarity doesn't go too far if the features are too weird to people. Like that nickel cylinder which I liked. To me I'd agree with heasedriver's price, maybe a little higher, but who knows. Here's the one I had.

    Asking is 1600.00. I guess I can always put a blue cylinder in it if I want (if I can find one)

    No offense to those who own them or like them but pintos of any make of model always strike me as a waste of a perfectly good gun.

    Yes I found the holster on Ebay for sixteen bucks because it looked like crap. but I cleaned it up, replaced some leather on it, and made the belt based on my other Ojala. Then I beat the belt up to match the holster.
    I found that my nickel .44 special cylinder meant to go with my .44-40 Centennial fits and indexes perfectly in this 3rd generation SAA. It's removable bushing is tighter than the fixed one on the blued cylinder. I really like the loks but can see why others can't stand it.
