I hope the anomalies of the gun like weird marked grip frame and barrel address on the other side made you get a real deal on it.

    It is possible that Colt assembled your gun with overrun parts from past production. Being a very late 2nd Gen gun might support this possibility. However, there aren't many pictures, which leaves all of us in the dark for comment.

    Come to think about it, I have one 2nd gen in that same SN range in the woodgrain box. I have not looked at it since I purchased it well over 15 years ago. It may be a parts gun.

    I thought I had heard of these before, refered to as "non-standard production models" or something like that. About two months ago I saw a used one at a local California gun shop, it was a 2nd Gen with beveled cylinder and "single action army .45" on the right side of the barrel. If I remember correctly it was a 5 1/2" barrel in blue/cch. They wanted $2000, it was not beat up but definitely well used.

    Do you think Colt was kind of cleaning house putting all these parts together because they knew they were going to retool and change the barrel/frame threads and old barrels would be useless on the new style frames?

    Shouldn't the stocks on Tim's nickel SAA have medallions?

    45 long colt straight from the horses mouth( Rampant Colt ) no pun intended

    as for the special features I called after I got letter and asked / told them the features were listed in Wilkerson book , they said they don't go by the Wilkerson book only what they have listed in there archives. I think that was BS. they knew !!! how they built it.

    and for the medallions mine didn't either( I still have the original stocks , had Paul Persinger fit ivory on mine .

    and for Wyatt Burp , no telling , im sure they had frames and barrels, cylinder left over and used them all. I so call the End Run.

    eagleeye--

    I received Don Wilkerson's book today and found my exact revolver pictured in page 71 and described on page 72. All numbers listed are found on my gun! I want to thank you publicly for noticing this and pointing it out to me and the other Forum members.
    It appears I have a rather special firearm.

    Tim

    BlackAgnes , cheers !!!!! thank you for the thanks . I was excited to see it on the forum and when I spotted it I knew you had a very unique SAA.

    I knew you would be thrilled to see your gun in a book , I know I would.

    I have learned a lot here and just passing some insight to help others as others have helped me in the past when I had questions.

    this is the best forum bar none .
