    If you're asking about the Colt Single Action Army, thanks to various dealers, they saw wide distribution across the globe - if you're asking about any Italian distributors, you'll have to find references in your Public Library, by way of catalogs.

    Bienvenido al Foro COLT !!

    Disfrute de nuestra comunidad...

    Sí, es posible que ese modelo haya sido importado a su país...

    ¿Tiene sin algunas fotos de su Colt SAA que le gustaría compartir con nosotros?!

    Thank you very much sir. The problem is that we don't have a so old Public Library. For example I know that model 1851 was adopted from liberty troups (Garibaldi), but nothing about 1873 model

    Muchas gracias señor. El problema es que no tenemos unabiblioteca pública tan antigua. Por ejemplo, sé que el modelo de 1851 fueadoptado por las tropas de la libertad (Garibaldi), pero nada del modelo de1873. Lamentablemente no tengo un Colt 1873, tengo 2 reproducciones CattlemanEl Patron Uberti

    In 1873 the SAA was the newest, most powerful handgun available and it fired self contained cartridges. I imagine people all over the world wanted a Peacemaker and Colts wanted to sell them one!

    I know that Italy bought a number of Colt M1849's in the late 1880's. Yes, that is correct - 1880's not 1850's! Not sure why.

    I believe winchester took all the remaining stock of cap and ball and conversions,in 1882, completely cleaned out the warehouse according to breslin price book on the conversions.i have a type 7, that was shipped in that 1882 shipment to winchester.winchester had the means to sell world wide with good distribution outlets, so makes perfect sence italy said we will have some they are cheap.
