1875

  1. Preserving A Piece of History

    Single Action Army
    Below is an 1873 Calvary SAA mfg in 1875 and it obviously looks that old, which I like. What I don't want is the rust that might progress over time, unless I do something to preserve the gun. Not looking for a new appearance, though Uberties are pretty. Like to knock off the rust that's there...
  2. 1873 Colt SAA ... In search of my brother from 1875

    Single Action Army
    Got a Calvary SAA from 1875, #16414, with a mismatched cylinder from the same year of mfg, cylinder #6590 (16590). Going on the hunch that the cylinder on my gun was swapped out, maybe during cleaning etc, a very long time ago (patina on cylinder matches rest of gun), I thought it would be great...
