S85127A-S85399A


Although Colt customer service states the serials above as the frame recall and has not revised the range, SAA serial S85126A was additionally included, failed inspection, and replacement SAA sent to the owner. Thanks Volk5 for providing that additional information.

I am posting this mostly for future reference for myself and others interested - to make it easier to find quicker with the forum search tool. After gathering the info from Colt, I later discovered someone had already posted the recall serials, but it tougher to find when pages (25 pages of posts) into a thread discussing the recall.
Colt said all owners of the serials have already been contacted, but I pushed the subject of needing the serial range because so many SAA’s are resold and as the years pass, things get forgotten. It was also posted that some received SAA’s back from the recall and all of the serialed parts no longer matched and were having to possibly get that corrected.. in case any slipped through or remained unmatching, it would be much easier to explain knowing the gun was part of the recall.
I have seen several new SAA’s for sale in the S85xxxA range and and steered clear at the time because I didn’t know all of the facts.
Again, Colt said all SAA recall owners have been contacted, but I don’t know if that means all frames have been corrected, so that is another reason I was wanting to get this recall serial range.
I hope this is helpful to the fellow SAA third gen aficionados/ acquirers/ shooters/collectors.

This whole recall is taking way too long. My 1'st replacement took roughly 100 days after they received my recalled SAA on 1 Nov 18. This SAA had numbered parts from 3 different recalled SAAs so I returned it to Colt. Going on 7 months now and hopefully by the end of May I'll have my 2'nd replacement. I'm not holding my breath and wouldn't be surprised if this drags on thru month 8.

The point of my post was to make a small correction to the original post. The known range starts with S85126A not with S85127A.
With the information that you have provided me through our PM conversations whereas you have even received a replacement SAA, I agree that you are correct in saying that the affected frames at minimum falls before Colts documented started serials. I have missed previous conversations and thread discussions about what has transpired already.
I believe we can.. or have to assume that there could be even more earlier serials and later serials outside the range. Therefore I will keep Colt’s “documented recall range “ posted and addendum your case in the initial post for others to see when referencing.

I'd be real leery of buying any Colt SAA within a few hundred either side of Colt's published numbers, S85127A-S85399A, as one gun has already popped up out side Colt's numbers, identified by its owner as part of the recall. I'd likely pass anything within the 85,000 range just to be safe as I like to shoot mine on occasion, as well as look at them.

A lot of Colt's out there. Skipping 999 of them won't put a crimp on my buying.
