new score!

Always needed a colt Single Action Army for the collection but I've always been so picky I could never find one i liked, till now. In my opinion it's the right one for my taste.

2nd generation .45LC

And I will be shooting it!

Very nice!

About how much did that run you anyway? I'm not familiar with pricing ranges for guns of that era.

There's a channel/groove along the top of the revolver, which acts as the rear sight.

Here's the best image I could find, with a 5 second Google search. Should give you the right idea though...

With teh economy right now things are a bit strange.

Real money on a 2nd gen clean SAA is $1200-$1500 at this time. Though deals can be found, as I did with this one, at $975.

2nd Gen an older will always be the collector grade SAA while 3rd Gen to current not as desirable for long term investment.

The Colt Python and Diamondback have been the latest Colt revolvers on teh surge nearly doubling in price over the last 5 years.

You want an inside tip... Find as many cheap S&W 29's through 29-3's as possible and buy low now. They will be the next gun to 'blow up", they have already started.

Just about any Colt SAA in 90% or better shape under $1K is a good buy. Obviosly the older will bring the greatest return for your dollar.

My efforts are to shoot, enjoy and at minimum break even one day. Breaking even and enjoying it are win win!

No problem.

The rear sight is actualy part of the top strap ( the upper part of the gun) It's a slit milled right in.

cool! I guess they better get it right the first time b/c there's no adjusting front or rear. The front blade looks really high for how recessed the rear is.

yup, i guess aiming isn't much of an issue when you're only 7 yards away.

Good deal. I love it. I'll be scoring one of these in the future. I have about 300 rounds of .45LC just waiting for it.
