    Looking for help on an Artillery #13782

    If someone has access to Springfield Research data, would you please see if there is any mention of SAA Artillery #13782? Thx in advance for any help available.

    Nothing on 13782. 13486 7/20/98 was with Trp B 2nd US Volunteer Cav. 13985 10/22/00 was with 2nd Artillery. These are the closest numbers. Nothing close in original Cav configuration either.

    As I recall many in this serial range went to Virginia Militia.

    In its original Cavalry configuration, correct?

    The OP refers to the SAA as an Artillery twice. Didn't Virginia sell some of their militia guns back to Colt?

    For what it's worth, my 1st Generation SAA Serial Number List includes serial number data from the Springfield Research Service.

    The gun I recently posted serial number 12519 is on the list above as being bought from Virginia and nickel plated. If that is the case the subject gun should still be a cavalry and all matching unless it was altered by a civilian. Mine had it's original barrel shortened to 5 and 1/2 and still has it's matching number. If it is indeed a true Artillery Model then it stayed in the US Government's hands no matter where it was originally sent. Guns in this serial number range were being used to fill out state militias since all the active cavalry units had theirs.

    That is a fantastic list you have there Ruster. How often do you find new information to add to it.
    This all started with one gun!

    It makes sense. You are correct that it probably did NOT go to Virginia.
