    My new 2019 p1840!

    Scored it on Gunbroker for $1749 shipped. About as good a price as you can get these days. And its my first CCH gun. I picked it up from my FFL today! Serial # S8681xA. 45lc with the 4.75" barrel. I think its only a few months old. Looks and feels incredible in the hand. Feels heavy duty and extremely similar to my 1st gen of the same size. And personally, I like the browns and grays in the Case Hardening more so than the guns with heavier blues/purples. So for me, she's perfect. Can't wait to shoot!

    I agree about the colour pallet on the case colours, particularly on the right side; very nice.

    Best regards,
    My opinion is free, and worth every penny of it.

    I just picked up a new new P1850. The colors look much like yours. I shot it some yesterday and again today. I can't shoot it as well as my 62 model second generation. The trigger pull is heavier and rougher. I haven't been in it. I'll install Wolffe reduced power spring and clean up and rough spots.

    Thanks guys! From what I can tell, the trigger pull feels pretty good on this. Definitely not any tougher than my 1st gen that Lanara fixed up for me. Might be a little smoother than my 1980 3rd gen though. But negligible. I bet it will only get better once i fire it and break it in some.

    A couple observations. 1.) the 3rd click has a different sound to it than clicks 1,2, and 4. Interesting. On my 1st gen and my early 3rd gen all the clicks sound the same, with varying loudness. But the 3rd click here is higher pitched. 2.) the hammer locks back a tad further than my other two. Almost on the webbing of my hand. Not bothersome at all, just interesting. Any similar reports with these new 3rd gens?

    Congrats, a beautiful gun. But never to belabour the point, Colts SAA 1873 revolver is chambered in .45 Colt.
    Nowhere, not anywhere, on any Colt SAA is it stamped or engraved 45LC.

    Colts SAA revolver is chambered in 45Colt. Please to show me an original Colt produced SAA with 45LC markings!

    Colt really seems to be getting them out the door as of late. Very good looking pistol. I bought a P1850 about 3 weeks ago and am very happy with it. I paid $150.00 bucks more for mine but the dealer sent me pictures and let me pick between 4 that he had just gotten in.

    Nice gun, Chiz. I agree. That’s about as good a price as one could find on a NIB gunbroker SAA these days. And the 45LC is the most popular caliber too.
