Description: Colt Single Action Army in 45 ACP. I have had this revolver for over 20 years. It was sold to me from a close friend. He received it from the wife of his good friend who had passed away. He told me his friend had carried this revolver in Vietnam in the 60s while in the jungle in the US Army. I was dubious of this tale. Upon inspecting the weapon, I noticed it had been rebarreled and the barrel was marked Christy, California. I later determined Christy had converted a lot of SAA revolvers during the 50s and 60s. This weapon was chambered in 45 ACP which made good sense if you were in a combat zone in southeast Asia. It had a 7.5 inch barrel (badly pitted) and one piece walnut stocks with notches carved into them (3). I have had the barrel replaced with a new Colt 45 4.75 inch barrel and new Colt 45 ACP cylinder. The grip frame and trigger guard has been reblued. The frame is still as it was while in Vietnam, patina with very light pitting. The revolver has been fired less than 25 rounds since the barrel was replaced. I have a factory letter from Colt. It states this revolver was shipped to Jacksonville Fla on 12/08/1958 as a 5.5 inch 44 Special. According to Mr John Taffin, there were less than 2600 2nd generation 44 Specials manufactured. serial number 240XX-SA
