Been a couple of weeks in layaway jail. Got it out today, pretty stoked to have it home. Already ordered the Colt Letter. As I noted before it's a 1902 production. It did have a newer mainspring under the grips. The bore is pitted but nothing a 117 year old barrel wouldn't pass bullets through. I'll order some cowboy loads later.

There is a slight gap at the trigger guard, but I tightened up the screws so the gap is GONE!

Edited to add....The Pawn shop has complained they can't get new SAA shipped to them....so this one showed up instead and a century late.

This one has a good clean and crisp hammer pull and cylinder lockup. I do not intend to replace anything on this for cosmetics and will let it remain in it's worn glory. I removed the grips and both havles exhibit the last 4 digits of the serial number scratched on the inside with a sharp pick or something. When I can get some ammo there will be some range time. The bore is pretty nasty, but I'm not target shooting, just going to put some lead in the general direction I hope! I'm excited to say I finally got a Colt SAA. The only thing I can do is make sure it's cleaned and oiled properly.

I make my own belts and holsters. Thank you for the compliment.
WOW!!! I make my own too but mine look like Dennis The Menace did it compared to your craftsmanship! OUTSTANDING.

You absolutely have to post the letter when you receive it. I lettered my 1906 and 1916 SAAs and put the letter data in the Historical section of this forum.

Awesome ! Congratulations. Just the way I like them. Looks like it’s been in them piney woods a while. I suspect you’ll find it shoots pretty well.

Looks like it has retained nice original grips. We don't see much of this anymore, because the "grip swappers" have done their travesty since about 1955.

I even saw a nice etched 7-1/2" CFSS from the 1880 period with Franzite grips. Ugly!!
