Our Assessment: Everyone should have a Colt Single Action Army, and this would be a nice one to add to any collection. This revolver is chambered in the classic .45 Colt cartridge with a fast-handling 4 3/4? barrel. The gun is in Excellent condition, appearing to have spent more time in its included original box than out…we doubt it has ever even been fired. This one is a Talo Exclusive and must have been pretty rare as we cannot fine much info on it. This is THE classic sixgun chambered for a classic cartridge that would be just as great for the collector as for the shooter. Please see our photos and good luck!
