After searching for a Colt SAA 45 for several years, I’ve finally found one. An old friend that runs a small gun shop called me and said “a lady walked into the store with this Colt in a shoebox and she wanted to sell it”. Her story was that her late husband bought it new in the 70’s and never fired it. During a move she threw out the original box and stuffed it in a shoebox.
She told my friend she wanted to sell the gun to someone that would enjoy it as much as her husband did. Even though he never shot it. After a few phone conversations we settled on a price. Now I have to decide on a good holster to purchase.

Is the serial number xxxxxSA or SxxxxxA ?

If it ends in SA; its a second generation, and likely be worth much more unfired.

The photos of xxxxxSA will take your breath away. xxxxxSA absolutely needs to be carried in good leather and allowed to speak.

Nice. I just bought a like-new, 5.5," 3rd Gen in .45 Colt at the start of the year.


Here's your pictures:
