    Default Wanted: Colt SAA Revolver

    Hello all,
    I am checking if anyone has a Colt Single action revolver they are willing to part with. I’m not sure the big difference between 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation, but would consider any. I mostly just want a “cowboy” colt peacemaker. Thanks!

    I have a 1st Gen Bisely in .38-40. Non factory grips. Sure shoots nice.

    Thanks for the replies. Looking for Colt only. Is there much difference from 1st , 2nd or 3rd, besides the price?

    The age. 3rd Gen guns came about in the 70's. 2nd Gen from around 1920 until then. The first generation guns are considered the last of the cowboy guns.
