    I normally don't post these abominations with links but this one stood out.

    Who's going to set me straight and explain this as the real deal...the one off that made it out of Colt during it's second generation use up of old serial numbers??

    The serial number dates to 1907. I don't know where the 2nd gen comes from. I see no factory re-work marks but it doesn't look factory anyway.

    I can assure you that Hank Jr. Did not write that description. He knows Colt SAAs.

    It looks like it has a 2nd Gen Single Action Army barrel and cylinder. I think the seller is confused about what constitutes a 2nd Gen.

    The only thing I like about that gun are the grips

    It is worth the opening bid price.

    I like it but i'm not buying right now. Looks like a Bisley with 2nd gen barrel and cylinder. Should make a good shooter.
