    I bought one SAA comm. A few years back, it was fine. I asked a well-known SAA tuner to work on it, he refused, saying they were junk. Undaunted, I bought a few more from a very well-known auction house who listed them in EXCELLENT, WORKING CONDITION. I just got a look at them today, after...

  4. New Members Introduction
    Hello Everyone, I am new to the Colt collectors world. I purchased my first SAA last month and now I am all in to learn as much as I can. The gun I purchased serial number is 14088.

  5. Single Action Army
    I bought a colt SAA, I believe it’s from 1878. I’m trying to figure out if it’s a faked or real Artillery model. I do know the Artillery model isn’t really a model but will call it that because it’s best now by that in most books I’ve read. Ok so to continue on. I have been through a study of...

  7. Single Action Army
    Some years ago I bought a Colt SAA manufactured in 1913. I was told by the seller that it had been factory rebarreled during WWII (as well as nickel-plated, engraved, and tuned, and carried throughout the Pacific theater). He further said that war-time rebarrel jobs were easily identified by...

  11. Colt Revolvers
    Hi all, I'm more of a 1911 enthusiast (still learning), but am developing an interest in SAA's. My local shop has 2nd Gen. SAA with 7.5 inch barrel for sale in .38 Special. SN dates it to 1959. Everything looks original, including the black plastic prancing pony grips. It has some high point...
  12. Colt Revolvers
    I was wondering, hypothetically of course, if you were to inherit a gun that was over 100 years old and the serial number and many of the identifying numbers were apparently filed off, what would you do with it? Does it need to be registered? Can it be owned for historical purposes without a...
