Our Assessment: Everyone should have a Colt Single Action Army, and this would be a nice one to add to any collection. Manufactured in 1994, this revolver is chambered in the classic .38-40 cartridge. The .38 WCF is one of several Winchester cartridges the SAA was chambered for to provide compatibility with Winchester’s rifles. The 4 3/4? barrel has long been one of the most popular configurations for its fast-handling and convenient size. The gun is in Fine-plus condition with 96% of its metal finish and a great bore. This is THE classic sixgun in a classic SAA cartridge that would be just as great for the collector as for the shooter. Please see our photos and good luck!
