I have saa #6150. When I enter it into the Colt serial number lookup, only one gun comes up (not an saa). Entering the numbers previous and after 6150, a lot of Colts come up including saa, mfg. 1874. Try it and tell me that something weird is not going on, OR can someone offer a theory. Thanks

I reconstructed serial numbers vs. years, after adding in the U.S. Government contracts. Your #6150 would be about April-May 1874.

The first 12,000 or so Colt SAA's sold to the government are not recorded as "shipped". Instead, these were transfered to the government in lots after inspection was complete.
