Colt SAA 2nd generation. .45. 5 1/2" bbl. As new. No box. Colt Letter 1972 gun. The letter doesn't mention engraving, though this gun falls into his employment range. Bill Mains was a Colt contract engraver prior to working for company from 1967-1972. Bill engraved many Colts as contract engraver and in house engraver. Colts policy was, engravers could not sign work. Bill was not comfortable with this and developed a stamp of a buffalo and stamped all his work with it. This gun is beautifully "A+" engraved and bears that buffalo stamp. Although 1st generations are most collectible, there are 350k of them, 2nd are rarer. With only roughly 80k produced from 1956-1974. The value of seconds will be recognized by the collector and investor at some point. This is investment quality.
