"chometank", your revolver looks pretty nice, can you post more pictures of the Colt address and the patent dates?

Is the action in time and operating correctly? The Nickel plating appears to be an early aftermarket as the Hammer appears to have been plated. These ols 1st gen revolvers are my favorite!!!

Hi hwjhfs, thank you .
Yes Abwehr , will post some more pics soon ( 5 am here and the Mrs will wonder what ilm up to rustling around in the safe ! )
I ordered a colt letter and it said the nickel was factory applied , the good folk here t old me my hammer was a replacement as the finish was so good compared to the rest of the gun.
In my limited knowledge of colt revolvers it appears to be in time as everything lines up as it should when cocked and fired.

Paul,

Thanks for the photos, they are great. I make terrible pictures myself, but you did really good. Your Colt is a Beauty; I like that type that shows use and from the light stampings on the address, it has been wiped a lot to keep it from rusting from the weather, handling, dust & dirt, etc. This shows the revolver was used and for many years. I like nice looking old Colts, but the SAA revolver was a tool and the wear shows it was taken care of!!!!!

Thanks Abwehr, i hope this one is the first of many to come.
Although there is not a lot of the 1st generation here in Oz they are here and are usually tucked away in someones collection , i guess some were brought over by our US brothers during one of the later gold rushes here.
Thanks for the reply
Cheers Paul
