Tuolumne Lawman:
I have not owned a "real Colt" since my 1898 vintage one I had in .38WCF, back about 1999.  I work at a local gun shop part time, and an opportunity walked in to buy a 1977 vintage Single Action Army with 4 5/8" barrel, blued and color case finish is 99+% with Colt factory black plastic (gutta percha?) grips. It has no box or paperwork, but it will be a shooter for me, so I don't care!  We are still negotiating, but looks like it will be around $1200.

Good deal, I assume?

Sounds good to me!  What caliber?  And it's a Colt, so it's 4 3/4" not 4 5/8" (  :D )

Sounds like the '78 vintage 44 Spcl I bought 20 years ago with no box but looking unfired.  I paid $900 back then.  $1200 for an SAA in excellent shape sounds pretty awesome these days! 

 I think the grips are still some kind of rubber but not gutta percha any more.

Tuolumne Lawman:
LOL. I guess 4 3/4".  LOL ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I have never paid this much for a pistol before!


Dave T:
That's a 3rd Generation Colt which is less desirable to some but still a real Colt and most of them are quite handsome to behold. $1200 for a ninety-nine percent 3rd Gen Colt seems like a good price, particularly in this gun starved market.

Oh, and the stocks are indeed some form of plastic these days.


Major 2:
I would have jumped on it myself , congrats
