Picked up another Bisley at the big Crossroads of the West gun show last weekend.
It's chambered for .38-40 and lettered to George Tritch Hardware Company, Denver, Colorado February 6, 1903.
These nice .38-40 Bisleys seem to be coming out of the woodwork lately.

Simply wow. While SAA production continues today, essentially the only way to get a Colt Bisley is to buy an original. So in a sense the ratio of Bisley/SAA production gets more narrow as time goes on. It’s only a matter of time before similar condition bisleys could surpass SAA pricing. Just my .02.

Many years ago it was inferred in the Blue Book of Gun Values and other publications that Bisleys were worth less than standard SAA's of the same vintage. So has it been. Re tweeted and re tweeted. Same for Long Flutes.
I've never heard that regarding long flutes. The ones I've seen sold have gone for more than comparable standard first generation SAAs.

I know there are some members who do not feel the Bisley's are 'on the rise,' but these high condition ones and those
of scarce caliber/configuration are certainly receiving lots of praise and interest from our members.

Your post just reminded me that there is one for sale similar to yours here in Gettysburg also 38wcf. $3500 IIRC.
