My new/old Gun

Its a Colt SAA 38-40. It was made in 1898 and was my Great Grandfathers. My dad gave it to me yesterday (I had tears in my eyes). I have not shot it since I was 12 but I can not wait to shoot it again.


2000 Black GT Conv.
07 Kawasaki ZZR 600 (Recovered by the good guys)
84 Jeep CJ-7 (My Toy)
04 Lincoln Aviator (Her Toy)

Not sure about the grips but every thing else is all colt. I wonder about the pearl grips too. because most SAA's have black grips.

They had pearl grips as an option back then just like they had ivory as an option.
