Thanks for the input, swamprat. I was wondering if that might be a possibility. Someone (maybe on the Lounge) posted a picture of a NIB mint 1920s SAA and it had a nickel grip screw - aah-haa! So, maybe so.I may be corrected....but I believe all 1st generation grip screws were nickel plated.
Yep, I have heard that also.Thanks for information swamprat. And thanks to you and CJS57 for the great pictures. Guess it can go either way.
By the way, I have a nice 4 3/4" SAA like the one you pictured with the badge that letters to Wolf and Klar in Fort Worth. I've heard alot of Texas Rangers' guns went through them. Ever heard anything like that?
Great provenance - great, great, great!Yep, I have heard that also.
The gun pictured with the badge was a San Antonio Police Dept gun, they bought 50 of them in 1927 and traded them in to Alamo Sporting Goods in the late 40's for more modern double action revolvers:
