COLT SAA IN .45 COLT WITH 7 1/2 INCH BARREL. FACTORY ENGRAVED WITH LEVEL D FULL COVERAGE. COLT BLUE FINISH. CUSTOM SHOP CASE. FACTORY LETTER. NIB  Guns > Pistols > Colt Single Action Revolvers - 3rd Gen.
Description: A fabulous, Colt SAA 3RD Generation in .45 caliber and 71/2 inch barrel with “full coverage” Class D factory Custom Shop engraving and beautiful, smooth grips with gold Colt medallions. The factory letter dated February 10, 2014, states that Colt shipped this SAA to Bill's House of Guns in Merrill, Wisconsin, on September 20, 1978, under order 10838 as part of a four gun shipment. The letter confirms the caliber, barrel length, metal finish and the Class “D” American scroll engraving and the unfluted cylinder. American Masters Engraving Company is listed as the engravers. This beautiful Colt has the standard SAA markings and features. The BEAUTIFULLY FIGURED grips are hand numbered to the gun on the underside of each panel. Of the total number of engraved Colt 3RD Generation SAAs, approximately 83% were in caliber .45 Colt, 64% had a blue finish, and only 24% had Grade D engraving. This revolver comes with a burnt orange Custom Shop leatherette case (discontinued in 1981). The interior originally had an orange velvet lining but it deteriorated with age and was removed with the intention of replacing it. The white styrofoam, revolver shaped inset and the small Custom Shop blue enameled Colt push pin remain. When the new owner replaces the interior velvet-like lining, the Colt pin can be replaced in the lower left corner as originally delivered. A Colt "wood grain" box, with yellow Custom Shop label correctly numbered to the gun accompanies this Colt. The owner’s manual and papers are included. This Colt is new. The case is fine except for missing cloth interior, with light handling marks, some light storage marks on the exterior, light corner wear. Cardboard box is good with general handling and storage marks, some partially separated corners and edge wear. Two sets of papers, one for the cardboard box and one for the Custom Shop Case, with owner's manual and Colt screwdriver.

The 71/2 inch barreled SAA give the engraver more room to work his art, and this Colt beautifully combines quality, full coverage engraving with Colt blue and case colors and, of course, the grips. Very classy!
