Default Waiting for me when I got home from work was a

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.

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

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
