I have been picking up a few Colt SAA and 1878 DAs lately.

I have a 1st Generation SAA in .38-40 and after a long price negotiation I am going to pick this up on Tuesday:

My small group of 1878s include a .44-40 from Atlanta PD, a Philipine Constabulary Model .45 , and a .32-20 from 1899 or so.

Which of these should join the herd next?

The SAA is in .44-40. Both are 4 3/4" bbls. which is my preference.

Best,
Charles

I am not crazy about either of these guns. They are overpriced.
The SAA looks like the grips have been replaced with newer ones. Mechanics need work (look how the trigger sits). Bore is pitted.
The 1878 has been refinished.
Who knows what else is messed up on these two old revolvers.
These guns are $800 to $1200 guns IMHO.
