...it was just TOO pretty. It was 5 1/2" which isn't my favorite, but the fit and case colors were gorgeous. It was $1025, if I recall. I think I should own at least one blue/case SAA in that condition, but I'm just drawn to the rat rods more. These two that I posted before are perfect examples. My '58 .44 Special and a Colt converted 1911 .45 that used to be a .32-20. Supposedly has Nevada Pinkerton provenance. It came with the Colt price list invoice for the 1969 rework. But at least I know where a new one is at a good price. Maybe I'll check the piggy bank.

I think you should sell me the 1911 model to free up some cash for the new purchase :)
You'll have to pry it from my cold dead...well, you know how that goes. That .45 had a ten ton factory mainspring but a friend of Jim Martin's makes them and it's smooth as silk now.

It's a very nice reolver WB. I think you and I have pretty much the same taste for the useful old saa in altered states with lot's of history.
