Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Colt Single Action Army SAA -- 1873 Peacemaker .45 Cal Revolver - In the Box

LSB#: 120411BH18

Make: Colt

Model: Single Action army

Serial Number: SA27514

Year of Manufacture: Ca. 1978

Caliber: .45 Colt

Action Type: Single Action Revolver

Markings: The left side of the barrel is marked “Colt Single Action Army ..45”. The top of the barrel is stamped, “Colt’s P.T.F.A. Mfg. Co. Hartford, CT U.S.A.”. The left side of the frame is stamped “Pat. Sept. 19, 1871 / July 2, ’78 Jan. 19, 75”, followed by the rampant Colt logo. The serial number is found on the underside of the frame.

Barrel Length: 4 ¾”

Sights / Optics: This revolver is mounted with standard fixed SAA sights.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The grips are two-piece, checkered hard rubber. The checkering is sharp and there are no wear marks. The grips rate in about Excellent - New overall condition.

Type of Finish: Blue / Color Casehardened

Finish Originality: Factory Original. The "K" on the trigger guard may indicate a factory refinish, but either way, the gun exists in very sharp condition and the finish was certainly done at the factory.

Bore Condition: The bore is bright and the rifling is sharp. There is no evidence of pitting or erosion.

Overall Condition: This revolver retains about 99% of its metal finish. There are only two imperfect areas on this pistol. There is some extremely light thinning on the front strap, behind the trigger guard and there are one or two tiny marks on the back strap. Otherwise, this gun looks new. There isn’t even a drag line on the cylinder or any loss at the muzzle. The cylinder looks unfired, and we believe that this gun was just handled and maybe shot once or twice. The Screw heads are unturned. The markings are crisp. Overall, this revolver rates in about Excellent condition.

Mechanics: The action functions as designed and has likely only been cocked a handful of times given the existing wear. The lock up with the hammer cocked is great and tight, and with the hammer down there is just a bit of play. We did not fire this revolver.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: This revolver comes in it’s original wood grain box, with manual, Service Station and Warranty Brochure and the Hang Tag. The box is present, though a very tattered with some losses (as photographed). The inside and outside of the box halves show marking and wear and the corners have begun to separate with lost material. The box is in poor condition. The end labels have completely separated since photography.

Our Assessment: Colt quietly discontinued production of the 2nd Generation Single Action Army (SAA) in 1974, much to the dismay of cowboys and shooters everywhere. Few shooters outside the firearms industry had heard a word about it. The good news was Colt was bringing the SAA back again in a 3rd Generation. Changes were made but the basic SAA was the same. One new change was a pressed-in cylinder pin bushing instead of the removable ones used in 1st and 2nd Generation cylinders. Also the ratchet at the rear of the cylinders was re-shaped, which also necessitated a different shape on the rotating hand. There is no more American gun than the SAA, and no nicer SAA than this one – Good Luck.
