1st Gen COLT SAA Revolver in .32-20 WCF Made 1912
.32 WCF Colt 6-Shooter Made in 1912!
Here we present a First-Generation Colt Single Action Army Revolver in .32-20 WCF, manufactured in 1912 in Hartford, Connecticut. The Colt “Peacemaker” was introduced in 1873 and has become one of the most iconic firearms in all of history, thanks to its widespread use by the U.S. military, civilians and, more recently, in Western films. Total production numbers for the “First Generation” (c. 1873-1940) Colt Single Action Army reached 357,859. These continued to be relied upon as well as “hot-rodded” by the likes of Elmer Keith, Skeeter Skelton, many other lawmen and gun writers of the time.
This one features a 4-3/4 inch barrel, chambered for a great cartridge. While the .44s and .45s are generally perceived as the man-stoppers of the day, the .32-20 was no slouch, pushing a 100 grain bullet at about 1000 feet per second. In fact, look closely and you will notice 3 deliberate notches on the head of the ejector rod. This would have been a great revolver to compliment a rifle in the same caliber and many did so well into the 20th Century!
The overall condition is very good. 15% of the original blue finish remains. The markings are clear. The numbers match. The trademarked hard rubber grips are in great shape. The bore is clean with nice rifling. The action is excellent. Here is a classic Colt in a short configuration and chambered for one of the great smaller bore cartridges.
