Doesn't Colt make single actions?

If you have a favorite, why not post a picture?

Thanks dux. Gun handles and shoots like a dream.

Anyone else have SA pictures that they would like to share? I always enjoy looking at 'thumbusters.'

Let dig this thread back up.....

I found this Colt New Frontier, and had to have it.

44 Special, with extra cylinder for 44-40.

7.5 inch barrel.

Real spotless gun.

In these pics it is wearing some jigged bone grips by Buffalo Bros.

I also have the original Colt grips.

Beautiful SAA. Looks like everything is original, including wood grips for the military. I wonder what battles it might have been in? Any idea where it was shipped to? Rick.

Here's my first SAA. Engraved at the Custom Shop by Jan Gwinnell.





I'm working on my photo skills. Please be patient. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Always enjoy looking at SAA's. Weagle's 5.5" NF is my idea of near-perfect form and function, and SA's engraved gun is "just right" in the amount and style of engraving. Beautiful!

SA99054,

Very nice SAA. Here's what's happening with the close up or macro photography you're doing of it. The apparature that the camera is choosing is a very open one. I.E. the F-stop is at a very low number this means that the depth of field is very narrow. When shooting macro this is very easy to do. If your camera has an apparature priority mode pick an F-Stop such as F8 or F11. You'll need either more flash power or available light but you'll have the entire revolver in focus not just portions of it.

Dave
