I have a Colt SA Army 45 lc and trying to find the value in the BB. It has a 4 3/4 " bbl, black plastic grips w/ eagle. It came in a brown wood grain cardboard box w/ two Styrofoam halves. The serial number starts wit SA. Confused about the box but doesn't this sound like a 3rd generation Colt Army.

    Only up to 73319SA, the last of the Second Generation models. The early Third Generation SAA's began with 82200SA through 99999SA before they began stamping SA at the with serial number SA01001.
