I just bought a U.S. marked Colt Single Action Army. I was told it was made in 1880, from it's serial number but would like to make sure. I'm thinking of getting a factory letter. How much do they cost and how do I get one?
If you call Colt with the s/n, they will usually tell you date of manufacture. For a US marked Colt, you might consider going to Kopec for authenticating originality. Colt cannot do this because all they have to go by is the s/n. Kopec will take parts off and tell you what you may or may not want to know. I found out from Kopec things that I didn't know about my US Colt and I was sure it was all original - disappointing but good to know so as not to fraud a fellow collector.
