I'm no expert on this, but I've had the best luck with phone pictures emailed and saved to a file on my computer hard drive and uploaded from there. I can pick the resolution and file size to keep it smaller. Since I don't have any engraved guns I don't need the high resolution.... yet.

That's a stunning SAA!
I've never seen one with something engraved on every single surface.
Whose blood is on the front of the ejector rod knob?

Appears to be a 1st gen but what year? I would conclude between 1880 to 1889 because:
The 3 line patent dates, (1876 -1890).
38 Colt chambering with bored thru cyl for the .375" heeled bullet, which would chamber 38 Spl -1880 to 1905. But the barrel bore is too large for the .357" bullet of the 38 Long Colt, 38 Colt Spl and S&W Special.

38 Colt Spl chambering not available until 1909.

No Rampant Colt in circle which didn't start 'til 1890.

I always thought that the 38 dual cartridge marking existed. Is that the original roll mark?

When the picture is on your desktop, find the edit feature on the pull down menu and click on rotate - either left or right. Then save the picture in rotated form so that it will attach in the proper orientation. I use an iMac, but the controls for PCs should be similar.
