Colt 1st Generation SAA Single Action Army Revolver 45 Cal. Nickel 5.5” Barrel, Texas Shipped, c. 1883 ANTIQUE  Guns > Pistols > Colt Single Action Revolvers - 1st Gen.
Description: This Colt was shipped to Charles Hummel & Son, San Antonio, Texas, January 31, 1883 (serial #87943), with nine others. It is a 5.5” barrel, .45 caliber nickel finish gun originally with hard rubber grips (long gone – replaced at some point with stag). It is mechanically fine, with a very good bore (bright, strong rifling, minor surface frosting), and retains probably 10% of the original nickel. This is a fine Texas Colt. It was shipped to San Antonio and we acquired it from San Antonio. The 1982 Colt letter, however, was sent to a gentleman in Farwell, Texas, which is on the New Mexico line, just into Texas east of Clovis, NM. This is an ANTIQUE. No FFL is necessary for shipment.

The gun is well used but also well kept. The holster is unmarked and mended (the rear skirt has been replaced) but in serviceable condition and of the proper vintage.

If you are not aware, when you click on an individual picture, there are forward and back arrows in the upper left corner. If you click the icon between the arrows, you will get a great enlargement. We suggest viewing pictures on a full-size computer to take advantage of this feature.
