1 Gen Early Smokeless Power SAA 1896 45 long colt Sn 167xxx NRA Good
Info from blue book of values: several important physical characteristics were change during this transition period.
Most notably, in 1896 the vertical screws retaining the cylinder pin was eliminated in favor of horizontal latch.
The knurling was enclosed in a border with a line underneath.
On the end of the pin for the cinder it has some damage looks like someone might have used something to grab it. Mechanically sound. All original. Finish is gray.
This colt has been in are family for many years. It was passed to me and I am into more modern firearm.
I had the pistol looked at by Wild Bills in Orlando Fl. (Wild Bill is a cowboy action & black power firearms dealer).
I was told it is about 70% Blue Book and should go for a quick sale of about $3500.
I would like to sell it for $2750 OBO I want to move this piece I have my eye on something right now. No returns please make shur this what you want is a old gun the pistol is working good but it is old!! Bobby Orlando FL
Ship to firearm dealer please.
