Two-Bits,


I'm not an X-spurt on Colt SAA's by any means, but I can answer some of your questions.

The bullseye ejector rods sold for the Rugers are copies of the original Colt rods.

The cylinder base pin was originally held in by a screw that screwed into the front of the frame just below the base pin at an upward angle.
The spring loaded cross pin first appeared in the late 1890's just before Colt said the SAA's were safe with smokeless powder.

I don't have any photos of a original Colts, but the Cimarron clones are very good copies. Here is a link to the Cimarron site.

This should show some of the features that are correct to an original Colt.

Edited by author for spelling errors. Hope I didn't make any more.
