    Forgot to mention... can’t get a BP frame anymore (currently) so might factor that in there as well.

    A most beautiful SAA. Had I the $$$, I'd be very proud to own it, as I'm sure the new owner is.

    Just a question as I am unfamiliar with Custom Shop engraved revolvers. Would the end label on the white box not note the factory engraving? Or is it S.O.P. to just note the basic description of the firearm?

    Hi, I just picked the cheapest in revolver and engraving to settle on the price, regards, Mike

    Buyer would have been better off getting such a gun from Nutmeg. That probably would have been in the $3500 range.

    Love to hear from Brent T. , as it is stated as being his at one time. .It was factory B Master engraved by Steve Kamyk and part of a Talo special edition of 10. It went for right around what I'd expect , but I would put the included black rubber grips back on in a hurry..

    What is the reasoning behind this?

    Steve R. , I saw in the auction what you mentioned about Brent once owning the gun. I gotta say, I think it would be pretty cool to own a gun that was once owned by the Colt custom shop manager. Brent has been really nice to me when he was at that position. I’d be honored to own it.

    You would get a sweet gun from Nutmeg , but that’s like the guy that wants a standard brand SA .... just not the same .

    MASTER engraving , which will letter specifically - adds Big wood to the price .
