This is my first foray into antique firearms that still function, so I must ask-- is it safe for me to shoot cowboy low pressure loads (HSM, Black Hills, Hornady...)...
  2. 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...

    Here is an interesting auction I found where there selling the gun and holster owned by ARVO OJALA. That is the guy who trained James Arness how to fast draw and he was also the actor that got shot every week on the TV show on the opening scene. Here's a link.
  5. Colt Revolvers
    I have read several postings lately about end shake. I have 2, 3rd gen SAA. One 357 And the other 44 special. I went and bought needle gauges since both are1980 productions. The 357 has a .003 gap and the 44 is .004. Since I only shoot cowboy loads should I be concerned? I have read that...

  8. Colt Revolvers
    Hello everyone, I am new to the Colt Forum as I have just been given my first Colt SAA revolver from my father-in-law. He acquired the gun at least 20 years ago. My concerns are that the pistol is authentic as the serial number is 40! The first item that I find interesting is that my...
