Colt 1st Generation SAA Single Action Army, 4.75” Barrel, 45 LC, c. 1890, Cavalry (Retired)  Guns > Pistols > Colt Single Action Revolvers - 1st Gen.
Description: This Colt was delivered to the U.S. Government Inspector April 24, 1890, at the Colt plant with 99 other guns. It was sometime after “retired” from service and put to other work, the barrel shortened to 4 and 7/8”. The front sight was never replaced on the cut off barrel. The gun found its way to a pawn shop in Colorado, sold by an earlier owner’s grandson. The story goes that the grandfather worked as a deputy sheriff in Texas after the turn of the century. We don’t have any details.

The holster shown came with the gun, obviously after a long period of hard use. The rawhide has been replaced, the leather mended but it’s worn through in several places. It was originally a fairly high quality, floral carved, heavy leather holster made early in the 1900’s by C. I. Tibiletti, Victoria, Texas.

The Colt is mechanically sound with a good, unpitted bore. There is little or no original finish on the metal but the grips are original, showing a lot of use and two applied marks on the upper left.

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.
