Picked up an old Colt Single Action at the Tulsa gun show this past weekend. Been looking for one for a while. Numbers matching lettered civilian model made in 1883. Too late for the Indian Wars but it may have done in a bad man or two.

Nice. I've been wanting one for years. Wish I had known (and had the money) back in 1980 when I was working at a pawn/gun shop. We had a pile of the 3rd generations for around $350 each.

Nice find. Wish I knew you were going... We probably crossed paths somewhere.

There were some very nice collector pieces this time.

what caliber is this one


From 1873 through 1940 (with small numbers assembled during and after World War II, the so-called "Pre-War, Post-War" model), production of the Colt Single Action Army reached 357,859. This is identified as the "Pre War" or "First Generation" of the model. Calibers, at least thirty in all, ranged from .22 rimfire through .476 Eley, with approximately half, or 158,884 (including Bisley and Flat Top Target variations), chambered for .45 Colt. The next most prevalent were the .44-40 Winchester Center fire (WCF) at 71,392; 38-40 (38 WCF) at 50,520; 32-20 Winchester (32 WCF) at 43,284 and, the 41 Colt at 19,676.[7]

Itís a .45 Colt.

I really know just enough to be dangerous but I think that was the most common caliber in the early years of production.

I see now your numbers bear that out. up

Yes as always it was really too much to take in. After a while it sort of becomes overwhelming because you feel like you need to look at everything before ďpulling the triggerĒ on one. This one was in my wheelhouse date, condition, and price wise so I was glad it was still there when I was ready to make an offer on it.

We go every year so just shoot me a PM next time you go. up

Nice score. A decent shooter grade Colt SAA is on my bucket list to own. Maybe when the kids all get through college.....

Same here. We go just about every April. That's the show to find things you don't usually see. I saw license plates from as far away as NY and Alaska.
