FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:

The Colt Single Action Army, also known as the SAA, Model P, Peacemaker and Model 1873, is a 6-shot, single-action revolver designed in 1872 by Colt’s Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company—today’s Colt’s Manufacturing Company—and is still in production to this day.

The Colt SAA “Peacemaker” revolver is a famous piece of Americana.
The revolver was popular with ranchers, lawmen, and outlaws alike, but as of the early 21st century, models are mostly bought by collectors and re-enactors.
Its design has influenced the production of numerous other models from other companies.

The first Colt Model 1873 was designed for the U.S. government service revolver trials of 1872 and was adopted as the standard military service revolver until 1892.
These models issued to the U.S. Cavalry were chambered in .45 Colt and had 7.5″ barrels.

Since its original introduction the Colt SAA has been offered in over 30 different calibers and various barrel lengths, but its overall appearance has remained consistent since 1873. Colt has cancelled its production twice, but brought it back due to popular demand.
The production of Colt SAAs can be differentiated into three generations with various, small changes to their manufacturing and range;
First Generation (1873 – 1941)
Second Generation (1957 – 1974)
Third Generation (1976 – present)

This particular revolver is a Second Generation Peacemaker .22 chambered in .22 LR and .22 Magnum, manufactured in 1974, with a 7.5″ length barrel.
