Had a good day at the show on Saturday.
First an SAA .45 4 3/4 barrel. Previously fired but apparently not much. Just the slightest hint of a line. No original box but fella gave me a brand new plastic Colt box to take it home in...and for the price...not gonna squak. Fills the second to last niche in my blue SAA .45 group as I have the 12", 7 1/2", 5 1/2" and Sheriffs, now just need a 4" StoreKeeper.

Second, another Model 1917 to join the others. Appears a 1919 serial number. I just really like these big dogs. Pretty good original finish.

Last: Model 01911ANVIII, 100 yr anniversary. Not generally a "commemorative" Colt kinda guy but did like handling it, and for the price couldn't help but bring it home.

Pictures like that always make me drool. Very embarrassing! My meager collection has just started with a 5 1/2" SAA. It's good to be alive and shopping for Colts!
Hey QuercusMax, you have nothing to be embarrassed about. I feel the same way when I look at some of the Senior Members photos of 1st Gen SAA's and engraved Colts. And besides, we all started out sometime and for you that Colt SAA is a great start.
