My least favorite SAA barrel length is 5 1/2". Except if it's a nickel .44 Special or maybe a .45. I guess I just watched my Gilbert Roland Cisco Kid DVD collection too many times. But I watched this .44 Special on G.B. and almost bid when it was $1,000. But since I know where one is about 1 1/2 hours from me, I passed. It looks like a well made early 80's gun. For some reason the rampant Colt's legs look short on the left frame. Maybe my imagination.

Ive been to that town and Id call it the Trailer Park Capitol of the US, Trailers are everywhere. I also agree that the gun appears to be a refinish and the lower part of the horses legs are filled in

You're right..the legs are a bit short
But don't worry, just a lightly struck stamping, will not detract from the Colt or lessen value a bit

Sorry for being late to the party on this one boyz.
I do run the auctions and internet stuff for the store, but if you stop in, there's another Jeff that is actually the owner.
If you stop in ask for the OTHER Jeff or CHICAGO Jeff and you'll get them to go find me.
Nice store lots of stuff.
The reason for the razor wire is an important one.
We carry a LOT of guns. from cowboy stuff to Barrett 50 BMGs. Also a pretty good range of Ammo.
When we were in our previous location, we were in the middle of a strip mall.
The bad guys out here broke through 4, that's right 4 other stores to get into our gun shop a few years ago.
They broke through the outer brick wall of the strip mall, then went through 4 shops interior walls to get to our goodies.
If you want something bad enough, you'll do anything to get it I guess.
Our new building is pretty secure compared to the last location.
Stop in if you guys are out our way.

Actually, 10444 E. Apache Trail is in east Mesa. The last lot in east Mesa on Apache Trail is 11545 (on the south side of the street).
I believe I should stop in there one of these days just to look around.

Don't forget. Bad guys have cars, too.
Chandler is a fairly upscale part of the valley, but the gun shop at Alma School and Warner Rd. was broken into, too.

Jeff,
I'm surprised the city allowed you to use concertina wire.
