Please send me a email if you have a 1st Generation Colt SAA revolver that you feel should be added to the registry. I'm always looking for additional guns that were owned/used by well-known people (lawmen, outlaws, soldiers, Indian Agents, actors, etc.), guns that were owned/used by military units, movie/TV prop companies, mining companies, stage & express companies, etc., guns having an interesting or unusual background, or those connected to an historical event (like the Johnson County War). Just knowing where your gun was shipped, i.e., Brown's Hardware Store in Kansas City, will not get it added to the list.Rusty, how do I submit a gun and what kind of provenance do you need? .
As for provenance, I need information that substantiates the gun was owned/used by a particular individual, military unit, etc. Examples include Colt Letters (showing the gun was shipped to a well-known individual like Bat Masterson), Kopec Authentication Letters, information published in a book, magazine, or newspaper article, information from the Springfield Research Center, credible documentation from direct family members, engraved citations on the gun itself, information extracted from museum displays, etc.
Please contact me if you have a question.
