Arizona shipped Colt single action research project.
I thought it would be fun to try and document any Colt SAA or Bisley I came across on the internet or in books. If a copy of the letter is not listed then I am recording as much information as I can get. If anyone can add to my list of serial numbers please send me a PM of all the details or just reply. The ship to location and photos are in a seperate post now.....Thanks!

Here is the link to the Arizona ship to locations along with vintage photographs:https://www.coltforum.com/forums/single-action-army/98024-arizona-ship-locations-1st-generation-colt-single-actions.html

Trapdoor, I see what may be an error. Would you double check your information on ser. no. 330,015. I have it as shipped to Bisbee, not Douglas.

Ketch33 motivated me to search for some more.
Mitch please add these to your data base too.

Thanks Ruster, I looked for my 2278xx Bisley on your list but I guess I need to pay for a Colt letter one day, I've had the gun for 20 years and bought it in NM from an old timer. I figure it was shipped out here somewhere, possibly to Arizona. It's in the period where a lot of them were.
