Pizzamark--You have posted in a photo thread. Look again on the Single Action Army forum. There are two buttons that say, "Post New Thread." You should use either one of those buttons. But, if you want to know about your Colt, you would do well to post photos of it with your New Thread. Otherwise, imagination doesn't bring concrete assessments.
MrFixIt--Some forums don't allow new members to post in the For Sale area until they reach a set number of posts elsewhere. Find a Sale area on the Forum, and see if you can post there. Otherwise, try the same suggestion above to Pizza.
Came across these the other day and knew that they were destined for the Colt Forum and the expert opinions of the gentlemen here. Being a novice on these matters there isn't much I can add in the way of insight or expertise other than to simply post the pictures and maybe arouse some interest or debate.
Also feel free to comment about the two SAA replicas.
I thought I'd let you fellas take a look at these. I made shoddy scans of these from the originals about 10 years ago. The quality ain't all that but still interesting.
This is my grandparents. Backs of the originals said 1923, the year they were married. Probably somewhere near a little hole called Mounds, Oklahoma.
The picture of them pointing the two SAA's at each other is pretty much indicative of the first half of their marriage from what I understand. Nine children between 1925 and 1943.
In the picture of them next to each other he's holding a SAA in his right hand. In his left I'm almost positive is an Army Special that belonged to his father. Chambered in 32-20. The thin six inch barrel kind of gives it away to me because it's sitting in my safe right now, serial # dates it to 1910. Unfortunately my uncle had it before me and had it poorly reblued in the early 80's. I don't know who in the family ended up with the SAA's. For all I know one of you guys here might have one or both of them in your collection.
Anyway, thought I'd share these.
Pretty cool photos. Nine babies in a row would cause a woman to take aim at her husband!
As for your Grandmother's gun, I'm pretty certain I saw it earlier in this thread--Chaffee or saintclair have it, I think. Can't remember which, but it looks just like the one she's pointing at your Grandfather.
A couple of early 2nd generation 38 Specials. Bottom one has a one piece ivory grip and is my wife's snake and garden pest gun. Top one might end up becoming a 45 with either ivory or bison bone grips.
