    I am trying to find out the manufacture date for a .45 Colt SAA, Ser.# 139XX SA. Anyone know of a website that may show this? Thanks in advance, John

    COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY –
    POST-WAR PRODUCTION
    Year Ser. # Start Ser. # End
    “SA” suffix from 1956 to 1978,
    “SA” prefix 1978 to 1981
    1956 0001SA 8799SA
    1957 8800SA 18499SA
    1958 18500SA 23399SA
    1959 23400SA 28499SA
    1960 28500SA 33599SA
    1961 33600SA 35649SA
    1962 35650SA 37299SA
    1963 37300SA 38499SA
    The above is from the Blue Book. If your serial is correct, yours is a second generation made in 1957. The SA in the serial # position you state indicates second generation.
    Hope this helps.
