  1. New Members Introduction
    Good afternoon Colt fans!!! Feel a bit odd. Got my 3 1976 box set of Colts as safe queens without even a fingerprint ever being on them, and gently abuse my Italian made 5 or so. Really want to take the Dragoon, SAA and Python out to play, but I'm to busy honing up my Walkers, Armys and...

    Hi everyone I just inherited this Colt from my grandfather. I have been doing some research on it to try to prove that it is in fact authentic, and I came across this chat form. I am curious if you guys think I should purchase a Kopec letter to prove it. There are no military inspection stamps...

    I need some major help sorting this gun out. Found it in amongst a number of old guns in an old collection I bought (was after a few really nice civil war rifles and some colt Navy's). The wording on the barrel has been completely rubbed off and it appears to be refinished fairly well. The...

    Hello, I've been looking for a Colt SAA in .357 w/4.75" barrel for a couple months now. Not sure on most people's feeling on a Colt SAA in .357 but trying to keep the different calibers in my safe to a minimum with the prices of ammo lately. I'm looking for an earlier manufacturing date. If...

    Hi! I am new to this forum so I hope I am in the correct place for my questions. I am liquidating my FIL gun collection and seem to be struggling with placing a value on a few of his Colts. I have searched the BlueBook of Guns and think I am in the correct area, but just not 100% sure. From my...

    Hope this is the correct forum, I'm thinking primarily SAA but applies to all. I had always assumed roll marks and such were applied before case hardening. What makes sense to me is to machine the frame, cut threads and holes, etc., fit BS & TG, fit and polish, and then disassemble, stamp SN...

    I got this 1889 Colt SAA in a lucky trade recently. It is chambered in 38-40, and it's my first SAA. The positive qualities: it is still functional with original parts, and it can be fired. Also, there is minimal pitting, which I would imagine is great for a 132 year old gun. The negative...

    I have what I think is a third generation SAA, .45 given as a gift at least 20 years ago. Serial number front of the trigger guard is MDM002. I don't find any other serial numbers anywhere (cylinder, under grip, barrel etc). number does not seem to match any on file at Colt. Help please??
  9. Single Action Army
    I am new to forum and a new owner of a frontier six made in 1881. It is chambered in 44-40. I tried to load it today and the rounds wouldn’t go in. They got stuck about half way in. I took out the chamber and they fell right in. It looked like as I put the chamber pin all the way in it moves the...

    I just added a new 7 1/2" Cavalry Model recently. Was lucky to find it at a gun store locally on the shelf. The last one I ordered took almost a year to get. I am hoping to add a second generation gun to this mix shortly. I have shot them all and think there is something special about this...

    I'm curious what a nickel SAA in .44 might have cost new in the mid 90s... Anybody recall (ballpark is fine)?
  12. Single Action Army
    Hello, I was wondering if anybody has any idea of the value of this gun? I have a Colt letter coming. I had it listed for sale on GB and GA and GI but pulled it off. Do you know anything about the gun? Thanks for any help.
  13. Single Action Army
    Hello, I read some people cut the bolt front ledge so that the bolt goes deeper into the cylinder notches... Now, I am thinking that if that ledge is there, it's for a reason... What is it? I suspect it should not be done, correct or ok? My issue is that my bolt starts retracting pretty late...
  14. Single Action Army
    Hello all. I just joined this forum and apologize if this has already been discussed in another thread. I picked up a 1998 SAA P1850G(4), 5 1/2" 45 Colt. I noticed however that the left side of the frame is bare, no roll mark or rampant colt. The barrel is stamped correctly but other than the...

    Hi all, new member longtime Colt owner, I purchased a 3rd gen sheriff's model that had 'never been fired' - which looked to be in good condition until I borescopes it. I am very concerned about some rough marks that I am not sure are actually machining marks, but am afraid they might make the...

    Hello. This video is unlisted... I would like you guy's opinion on my timing efforts. Thank you. Gil.
  17. Colt Revolvers
    New to the forum Thank you in advance for help and input. I recently acquired what I'm pretty sure is a Colt SAA .45LC mfg 1886 from the serial number. The grips have been replaced with cheap ones and I believe the gun has been re nickeled. The nickel is covering any identifying marks other than...

    I wanted more of a shooter than a safe queen, so I finally pulled the trigger on this Single Action Army. What do you guys think of this piece? Thanks! Gil.
