Well, I decided to add another Colt to my collection. I already have two SAAs, but they are Uberti Clones. One is a 4 3/4" and the other is a 5 1/2." I wanted to get a 7 1/2" SAA and wanted to have a real Colt so I got this one. It's a 3rd generation in .44 Special. I had really wanted to get a .45 Colt, but Colts are few and far between these days in MD and the price wasn't bad. It is slightly used (a small scratch or two and has been fired, but very little shooting based on the cyclinder) and is about $1200.00. And while I realize I could have had two Clones for that price, I just wanted to have that horsey on it.
