Our Assessment: Everyone should have a Colt Single Action Army, and this would be a great one to add to any collection. Manufactured in 1992, this revolver is chambered in the classic .45 Colt cartridge with a 4 3/4″ barrel and nickel finish. The gun is in Excellent condition, appearing to have spent more time in its included factory box than out. This is THE classic sixgun in the classic SAA cartridge that would be just as great for the collector as for the shooter. Please see our photos and good luck!
