Colt Single Action Army 1896 Restoration

Since the Sergio Leone movie The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, I have always been fascinated by the Colt Peacemaker. This is an example of an amazing previous customer restoration made by Turnbull restoration in Bloomfield, NY and therefore the firearm is not for sale. The Colt Single Action Army “Peacemaker” revolver is a famous piece of Americana. The SAA was designed for the U.S. government service revolver trials of 1872 by Colt’s Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company and was adopted as the standard military service revolver until 1892.

History Restored:

Install new hammer, fit new bolt, time revolver, repair recoil shield

Repair ejector rod housing and screw, fit new ejector rod

Fit new reproduction black Colt grips

Polish all parts for correct high polish finish

All screws repaired/replaced

Restore all original markings

Color case harden frame, loading gate and hammer

New cylinder

Charcoal blue barrel and cylinder

Nitre blue screws
