1894 first generation Colt SAA black powder frame.

Needs a little work but I would too at this age. Does the hammer and or loading gate look period correct?

The hammer doesn't look correct to me, specifically the firing pin. I believe they were cone shaped, yours looks more chisel shaped.

I could be mistaken, as I know very little about these, or it could be the picture angle.

But I do know that, yes, it's supposed to have three screws.

Ok. I went to the actual auction. On it I could see the third screw. It dont look right. And why aint it showing on the other side???

I just hate telling a fellow that his Bird Dog was just killed down on the Interstate.:o

Holy smokes you're right. Where are the screws on the other side?

I'll be returning this on the three day inspection guarantee.

I feel gutted but without your help I would have been scammed. I guess that explains the price.

Thanks guys
