    I dug out the box for my Theodore Roosevelt Colt and the model number on the label is P-7979. My Peacemaker Centennial .45 revolver is P-7975 and the matching .44-40 is P-7973. Colt also used "S1" as a sufffix on some master engraved SAA's.
    In Don Wilkerson's writings he says several times that Colt sometimes interchanged the meanings on some of the numbers. Sorting out some of the more scarce variations might be a real puzzle if the original box with label is missing.

    By the way, does anyone have a 125th Anniversary SAA with the original box? If so, what is the model number on the box label? (I have two, but neither has the original box.)
    Thanks,

    Hondo - Sorry, should have been more specific. I was referring to the 125th Colt Anniversary SAA made in 1961. Come to think of it, there probably weren't model numbers on the boxes for these guns. They were usually shipped in a plain brown carton with the serial number on the bottom along with the display case. Model numbers on labels didn't really start until the styrofoam box era in the early 1970's.

    Buckspen,

    I think you're right.
