SA (1881) custom Cattlebrand 7 1/2 CFSS ivory grips.
Looks great.125th Anniversary SAA.
I used this for decades, shooting black powder cartridges. When I had to retire from such shooting, the Old Warhorse looked somewhat the worse for wear. The finish had dulled, a lot of the gold had worn off and there were dings, scratches and places worn through the finish. Parts of the action rattled and the cylinder had an eccentric spin.
I wanted it brought back to its former glory. I sent it to Bill Fuchs in Wyoming, just in time for it to be sidelined by the Fauci flu supply problems. I asked for the action to be fixed and tuned, the finish redone, the gold re-plated and special grips,
I know some people on the forum are readying the tar and feathers for me due to the refinish, but this was never a pristine collector's gun, I now have a beautiful gun that works perfectly, with custom grips at a price I could afford.
I'll take that. Bring on the tar and feathers.
Look at this, as humble as his Colt SAAs
Basically...who cares? Hollyweird is Hollyweird and truth is fiction and fiction is truth. Whether the rumors are true or not is immaterial...they were each fine actors.What you are looking at above is not RS's house.
"Randolph Scott's house in Beverly Hills, at 156 Copley Place backing on the L.A. Country Club, was built in 1950 on a one-acre lot. His widow lived there until she died in 2004 and then the estate put the house up for sale. It had an asking of $6 million but ultimately sold for just over $8 million. The new owners tore down the house and built a giant mansion. Estimated values, depending on which website you believe, are from $24 million to $60 million."
I did like Justin Dart's reason for visiting Colt
