I saw a early second generation 38 Special First day of production ??? SAA 4 3/4" (0100SA) great condition, it's been shot and no box or paperwork. He is asking $5,000.00, I'm thinking way to high.
Sorry no pictures.

The 4 3/4" was not available in 1956.

Double check the serial number; it doesn't look right. Perhaps not a first year gun????
It was a $5,000.00 price tag SAA in a glass case with a note on it stating it' was a first day production and I could reminder the serial number wrong, so I didn't look at it very carefully, because I wasn't in the market $5,000.00 SAA. But on the ride home, I was thinking perhaps I am in the market. That's the reason I'm checking with the forum for a price, my blue book show a ~ $2,700.00. Sorry for lack of information and photos, if I was serious about purchasing this firearm at the time I was looking at it, you bet I would have more accurate information. So I could be off the serial number and the barrel would have been 5 1/2", the saw the note and price tag and kept moving. I'm thinking about going back and giving it a closer look.

Colt lists # 0100SA as a 1956 POST WAR SINGLE ACTION ARMY or NF.

According to Wilkerson's book on 2nd gen's, serial numbers for regular production started at 1002SA. Several serial numbers below this were produced on special orders. These serial numbers were 0001SA, through 0005SA, 0019SA, 0050SA, 0054SA, and 0125SA.
