I inherited a Colt Single Action Army .45 when my stepfather died a couple of years ago and I just cleaned it and put it away with my other stuff, not knowing anything about it. This gun sat on a shelf in his office for 20 years (at least) in an old holster gathering dust, so I had no desire to be the guinea pig and try and fire it. I was cleaning all my guns this weekend and took it out and gave it a quick clean and decided to get all the #'s off of it and call and find out some about it. I just talked to my local dealer I usually use and gave him the serial # and he tells me that it's an original 1st generation SAA, and that the ivory grips (if factory original) would make it one of the higher end models. I figured it was just a 1970s model that my stepdad bought just cause it looked cool. Bare minimum in 10% condition was $1,500, all the way up to well over $5K if the grips are factory.
