I've found what is kind of a mutt. I got a deal on a relatively early 1st Generation SAA from 1881? I am having Alan Harton help me restore this little puppy. There are several issues. Original parts are the frame (heavily buffed at the rear), loading gate, hammer, and trigger. The trigger guard and grip frame are from a later 1st Gen gun. No original barrel, but I have a later 1st gen 5.5 barrel and a few shorter cut offs on hand. It letters as a nickel gun in .45 Colt with no listing for stocks or barrel length, meaning probably walnut and 7.5 inches. I got it CHEAP. It's probably more valuable selling off the parts, but I don't think I can do that quite yet. Since this is a restoration, I can really do anything. If you've seen Alan's work, I could do anything so I'm torn. So I thought, once again, I would leave it to the crew here to VOTE and lend me direction. I would REALLY appreciate any comments as well. Please disregard the ANTIQUED for each of the choices.
