And some fine shooting guns they are.To the best of my knowledge they only made them in the Peacemaker Centennials 1873-1973.
great guns, your 3rd gen CFSS are almost the same configuration then mine. My etched panel gun is from 1994 and the nickel plated one is from 1986. My etched panel CFSS also wears ivory now. The ivory grips of the nickel plated CFFS are out at a carver right now together with some other ivory grips for some Colt 2nd gen C&B revolverStarvation and Dallas, you mean like these? 2nd and 3rd, both sets 44 WCF.
Colt produced 2000 Peacemaker Centennials of both models, 1500 each in single cases and 500 in two gun cases with one of each models. The matched pairs have MPC either as prefix or suffix to the S/N and the single cased models have PC added to the S/N.The second generation black powder frames are they special run? or normal run serial numbered? thanks
That's a very interesting story maybe someone else can elaborate on that? thanksThe second gen pair are Peacemaker Centennials. As far as I know they were the only BP frames made new for the 2nd gen. Also have one of the Cavalry 45s in blue. I had heard somewhere once that Colt found a couple of 1st gen BP frames at the bottom of the frame bin somewhere around 1970 or so, but after all these years don't remember where I heard that or what the final disposition of those frames were. Could they have been the genesis/inspiration of the Centennial series or were they made up into presentation pieces for some Colt exec? Did they even really exist or was someone just speculating? By this point in time I doubt we'll ever really know.
