    It's unusual that your SAA has a 4 3/4" barrel while the Colt Archive Letter says that the barrel length is "Not Listed". Because your barrel has the two-line Colt address you can be sure that this barrel was made in that length and was never shortened but it may not be the original barrel on your gun. Your gun's barrel should have the last four digits of the serial number stamped on the bottom. You may have to remove the ejector rod assembly to see it but the number would confirm whether or not the barrel has been replaced.

    Two line address means it was originally a 4-3/4" bbl. There are extremely few exceptions to this relationship.

    This is extremely unlikely. They were likely discarded or destroyed many decades ago, maybe more than a century ago.

    Unless discovered in someone's attic or basement someday, this is likely a dead end. This is the case with nearly all distributors.

    Partial serials were marked on the barrels?

    It depends on when the gun was manufactured. Kopec's book says that the prior to 73000 (1882) nearly all barrels were marked this way and it continued until around s/n 90000. After that the barrel s/n marking was more sporadic and by s/n 120000 it had been pretty much eliminated.
