There has been some talk of the price of a 1st Generation SAA if only wanted for a shooter. I consider this as a good 1st Generation shooter at a reasonable price. Its a 7 1/2 inch .38-40 factory lettering to a hardware store in Salt Lake City in 1926. All numbers match, timing and lockup are nigh on perfect and it actually shoots to its sights with my handloads and Black Hills 180 grain cowboy factory loads. Grips are not original but came with the gun. I paid $1,900 plus shipping for it. I've had several .38-40 SAAs but I nabbed this one because 1st Generation .38-40s with 7 1/2 inch barrels seem fairly rare. By the way, it has not been reblued. Case colors on the frame are faded but are discernible. They don't show up well in the lighting I used. The barrel bluing has been messed with at some point but no buffing wheels have been near it.
