    Beveled frame
    Caliber only on the barrel
    beveled ejector rod housing
    circle rampant colt logo
    two line barrel address (4 3/4" guns)
    hand cut hammer with a border and line
    beveled cylinder
    1st Gen large front sight
    qualified hammer and ears
    BP ejector rod
    1st Gen full size loading gate
    beveled trigger guard

    What would be nice would be for Colt to still be in business.

    The way things are - a new SAA would look like those 'Charter Arms' new Cobras...

    A 150 anniversary is a nice thought, but I would not buy one. In 2023 I will be 79 years old. If kept unfired it would not appreciate much in my lifetime. If I shoot it, it would not be an anniversary model, but would become simply another Colt SAA.

    Now that is a thought, in 2023 I'll turn 66, and while I would dearly appreciate one as a retirement present (ya' listening kids?) I don't think I'll ever get the use out of it like I have my old beater 1891 .45. Of course I'm not going to get that kind of use out of any of my other guns at this point, it was always my go anywhere do anything partner.

    Well lets see Colt will no longer sell rifles commerically but will focus on military contracts. So the commerical part of Colt will survive on the 1911 and SAA along with the Cobra? I don't think so.

    That sounds great, but why no 5.5"? Didn't the 5.5' come before the 4.75" anyway? I swear some people (I'm looking at you Jim Martin) are just so prejudice against this great barrel length. It baffles me.

    My crystal ball (actually just a Magic 8-Ball) says the Peacemaker Centennial was Colt's last attempt at a faithful reproduction. Colt will issue a 150yr. SAA commemorative complete with plated parts, MOTS stocks and anniversary markings. They will come in a glass top display case, be limited to ONLY 10,000 units and have a MSRP of $4,995.00!

    Unfortunately, Rick, with the folks currently in charge over at Colt, I think you've hit the nail on the head.

    A 3 3/4" bbl with ejector. Blued, with one piece ivories and fire blued screws. Maybe also a two gun set, with this as one of the two, and your choice of bbl length on the second gun. In 44 spec, with 44-40 extra cylinder. If in 45Colt, an extra cylinder in 45ACP. A SA with the Thunderer grip.

    I admire your optimism but don't hold your breath waiting for ivory.
