    2nd gen SAA

    I'm thinking about a 2nd Gen for a Father's day present. I was looking at one on GB.

    I see the hole in the trigger. The numbers seem ok. repro box. Does anyone see anything else wrong? This would be my first blue SAA

    I was looking at the exact same one! Well, I was looking when the bidding was under $1500. Everyone on here says that the quality of the 2nd gen guns is top notch...And I think this one looks like a great shooter. I'll wait to see what the experts say, but I like where your heads at.

    Here's another 2nd gen. worth consideration imho

    Gun looks ok but for the final price ,which will be above the present price,you might consider one of the late 3rd
    Generations in about new condition with box and all. I paid $2100 for the pictured one on GB back in April. I
    know it’s more then the present priced gun but it has a great appearance. It was NIB. Pete

    That's a really nice looking early 2nd gen .45. Looks right to me, and not too perfect to make a great shooter. I think it'd be a good buy if it stays under $2K.

    Make sure the assembly numbers on the front of the cylinder, loading gate and frame all match. I bought the same revolver (.38 sp)last January off Gunbroker. It turned out to be a total parts gun.

    A nice early 2nd gen is going to about as close as you can get to a later 1st gen in look, quality and finish without spending the really big $$$.

    Looks like a nice gun. Production of the black box .45s with a 4 3/4 inch barrel is pretty low under 2,500. Good luck! I hope you get your Father's Day present.

    What do you mean by "I see the hole in the trigger"? You do mean in back of the hammer dont you? The gun looks good but how high it may go is the real factor.
