Hello SAA Collectors,

Colt's had the finer thread pitch of 24 threads/inch on 1st Gen SAA's and on some or all 2nd Gen SAA's, but does anyone know when Colt's changed to the courser thread pitch of 20 threads/inch? Was it at start of 3rd Gen production (i.e. S/N 82000SA)< or was it earlier in the 2nd Gen production run?

Thank you!

The change to the finer 24 threads/inch was started at the advent of the 3rd gen SAA's in the 8X,XXXSA range. I have a reference which indicates that was at 80,000SA.
