Colt SAA .45 Engraved Mfg. 1881  Guns > Pistols > Colt Single Action Revolvers - 1st Gen.
Description: This is a Colt SAA in .45 Long Colt, manufactured in 1881.It has been rather completely engraved, and nickeled, probably in the last 10 to 25 years. The engraving is of very high quality, but engraver is unknown. It's in very good shape mechanically, with good, shootable bore. All metal parts are original Colt, and properly numbered for vintage. The one piece walnut grips are not original, and are slightly undersized at the bottom. (If I were to keep the gun, I would put ivory on it.) Although the barrel appears to be 5.5", it actually measures exactly 5 and 3/8". This leads me to believe it may have been shortened, but from what length, I don't know. The sight is correct, so who knows? Maybe it is 5.5". Both the muzzle and cylinder face show a very slight pitting under the nickel. (Also, on my computer, there is a blueish cast to one pic around the cylinder, which is the fault of the photographer and is not actually on the gun.)
