  1. My Modest Colt Single Action Army Collection

    Single Action Army
    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...

    Want to Sell
    This 2nd Generation Colt Single Action Army was made in 1967 and is still new in the Presentation case and unfired. The craftsmanship on the limited edition pistols is beautiful.

  5. Cutting the bolt front ledge?

    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...
  6. P1850G Roll Mark Question

    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...

    Single Action Army
    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...

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...

  14. Share your Cowboy Shooting kit

    Single Action Army

  15. 1st Gen Colt SAA Broken Mainspring

    Sent my 1880 Six Shooter to Jim Martin and he suggested I post a photo of my broken mainspring (possibly the original) because it's not properly ground. Any DIY mainspring DIYers out there are urged to fair the sides and surface properly so as to prevent the ridges that create weak points (I...

  17. Smoothbore SAA's

    Single Action Army
    I have read some stories on how there are a couple of smoothbore SAA's supposedly used in the Wild West shows. When I started thinking about this, how would these guns have been used? I assume they fired .45 shotshells through 'em, but wouldn't that be somewhat "cheating" since its much easier...
