Colt 1st Generation SAA Single Action Army .38 WCF w/Heiser Holster  Guns > Pistols > Colt Single Action Revolvers - 1st Gen.
Description: This is a fine example of real "Shootist's" Colt. First generation and shipped to Marshall Wells Hardware Co., August 20, 1907 (serial #298xxx) with nine other guns. Wells had stores in Minnesota, Oregon, Montana and Winnipeg, Canada, but the specific store was not recorded. It has 4.75" barrel, gutta percha grips and is in .38 WCF (.38-40). When you pick up the gun and look a little closer, you begin to notice a few things. The front sight has obviously been filed on the sides to give a bead silhouette when sighting. The trigger pull is very light and crisp. There is more wear on the right side of the trigger guard than on the left - certainly a right handed shooter. When viewed from the rear, the hammer has slightly beveled edges. When you pull the grips off, you find an old custom hammer spring and leather buffer pad. A good gunsmith has tuned it at some point. Finally, the right grip has a more brown color (doesn't show up in the pictures) probably from being exposed to more sun and weather. The overall finish has turned to an even gun metal blue-gray patina, but the mechanics are correct. Serial numbers match, but those on the butt are very worn. The bore has some pitting but strong rifling. A Colt's authentication letter goes with the gun.

Accompanying the Colt is a vintage H. H. Heiser basket weave carved, double loop holster.

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.
