Some years ago I bought a Colt SAA manufactured in 1913. I was told by the seller that it had been factory rebarreled during WWII (as well as nickel-plated, engraved, and tuned, and carried throughout the Pacific theater). He further said that war-time rebarrel jobs were easily identified by the stamping on the side of the barrel--the address was on the left side rather than the right side--or something like that. I can find nothing about this online, and I'm hoping that somebody can give me reminder (or disabuse me of misinformation).

Thanks in advance for any information.

Address is on top. Replacement barrels had right side stamping. C.S.A.A. with caliber should be on left. If you're interested in single actions, buy reference books, it'll save you a lot of grief.
