Man, that's just not right! Your gonna cause that man to loose sleep;)Those are some beautiful guns:D Here's the 5.5" Nickel, and the Sheriff(even though some don't believe on the Sheriff). I finally bought the FSS that had been with my 1873 since 1889. Not trying to steal the thread, just wanted to add to it!

I think there's only 2001 of those Centennial .44-40's. Not sure if that includes the ones boxed with the blued .45. this fine sixgun is one of the last ones.

In 1973 Colt made two versions of SAA's to celebrate their "Centennial". There were 1501 caliber 45 Colt with 7 1/2" bbls, blue & case, black powder frame, one piece wood grips, 1501 caliber 44-40 with 7 1/2" bbls, nickel plated, black powder frame and black Eagle grips, and 501 cased pairs of each one. These are the only 2nd generation guns made with the black powder frame.
