    Hello I have a colt 45 that I would like to get some information on. I have found 2 serial numbers on it. 144867 & 544. It is nickel plated with pearl grips. Condition is kind of rough. Had a gentleman gift it to me and I would like to find out the history on it. Someone give it to him in 1958. Thanks for the help.

    Without good clear pictures shot in natural light with all angles of the gun we can’t be of much help.

    Frame is an 1892 Blackpowder, can’t speak to the other number. It’s been refinished in the past and because it’s from the black powder era of Colt manufacturing shouldn’t be shot with anything but black powder loads. A lot of guns from this era will have a mix of parts from similar models.

    Just the kind of SAA I end up with. I have a compulsion to "save" old messed up Colt SAAs. I have mostly learned to control myself and not buy ones with miss matched serial numbers but black powder frames get me every time. Are you sure it's a 45? I'm guessing it's not original nickel but you need to letter it and see what it was originally. That's what I like to do, letter it and restore it to original if I can afford it.

    The trigger guard with the 544 might not be Colt.
