Very nice!

When do we get to see some pics? I love the look of holster wear on a pistol...

Just before Christmas I found a nice Colt PPS in 32-20 from 1925, came with 3 boxes of 1950's vintage boxes of ammunition. The gun is nice but the ammunition is show room quality in condition of contents and packaging. I'll pedal the ammunition, should recoup a third of my outlay for it all.

Hello again Shooter 13,
Tell me about your Colt 45 SAA. What generation is it? How old is it? It is stunning!

Mr Lazy Eyed Sniper,
Your pair of revolvers are stunning also. What generation are they? What year were they made?
You mention model 1840? Correct me if I'm wrong, but they look like model 1873s.
Thanks
Wayne

Hello Sir,

Yes they are in fact 1873's, however Colt's factory model number is the P1840. They belong to my Pop, so I don't have a lot of detail as far as the generation or mfg. date. They're relatively new, made in the last decade or so. My Mom gave them to him for an anniversary present a while back. He still hasn't removed the factory zip tie and they still have never been rolled...
