    Question SAA problem see pic

    This is a gun for sale on GB. The gap at the front of the trigger guard between it and the frame is obvious. Is this just a loose screw or is something really wrong? There is no gap as you move to the back of the frame.

    I guess the only way to find out is to send the seller a message asking. Then have him send you photo's to prove that was all that caused it. If not, stay away.

    If the seller posted the pic with it looking like that, tells me he doesnt have a clue about the gun... and if he does then why didnt he tighten the screw first. It is enough for me to stay away.

    Hopefully just a loose screw. My wife claims I have several of those.
    Could the trigger guard be slightly sprung?

    That’s what I wondered seeing as how the rest of the assembly is right tight against the frame as you move back.

    The trigger guard was pushed forwards with the two rear screws removed causing it bend slightly. It can be straightened.

    I can stuff some pretty hot loads through my .44 mag NM SBH . It's my fishing partner for trout on the creeks. They fill a nitch.
