9/3/20 - This is an original Colt SAA revolver that comes with a Colt factory letter. According to the letter, it was shipped to the Salt Lake Hardware Company on April 17, 1912. This particular gun is fully functional, the cylinder is tight, and the action is smooth. It has only retained about 15% of its original finish, mostly on the barrel. The gun is completely covered in dark spots of brown patina. All parts are matching. The grips are original but fairly worn. The bore is shiny with great rifling - just spotty freckling throughout.
