    I have a Colt SAA in 45lc with a 5 1/2 barrel,nice case color
    a few scratches on the barrel not bad,it was made in 75 and
    yes the SA is at the end of the ser.num#.All parts match with
    last three num's on rear of cylinder, frame,and I think loading
    gate,but not sure.Bore is nice as determined by King's Gun
    Works in Glendale,Ca.Nice pistola,wondering what it might be
    worth.Oh grips are old stag and fit is not bad.Thanks

    As you probably already know, that is the last year of the "2nd Generation" SAA. Man, it would help if you had the original grips and box (not a Stagecoach box, these were shipped in the brown wood-grain box).

    Even so, a solid $1250-$1500.

    If you are in the mood to sell or trade, I would be a buyer.

    I know what box you refer to and no,I didn't get it with that
    or the orig.grips.I gave 1200 for it at a pawn shop back in
    98 or so.I know the guys that run this place since I smog
    their rides which isn't an easy thing to do out here in Cal.I
    was pretty happy with the deal I guess,though I know they
    didn't pay a whole lot for it,I didn't ask and they wouldn't
    tell me anyway.I got the numbers out of I think a R.L.Wilson
    book.I'll tell what's real sad,I have a very tight friend that
    I went to school with and have stayed in touch with through
    the years and he has his greatgrand-daddy's 1st gen.circa
    1891 or 92 that is orig. except for the grips.They are walnut
    I think but the real kicker is that they've been notched for
    each hombre or Indian that gave him a bad time.I've seen it
    and though its kinda rough you can feel the history in this
    bad boy.Yes it is a 7 1/2 "er and yes he got in the calvary
    when he was a troop there.This gun was handed down to the
    oldest son and that how he got it.He still won't let me play
    with it.He just shows it off to me,kinda laughs and puts it
    back up!He ain't right.Sorry for the long story.
