Ken 44-40 and others...stainless Colt percs

I do not have any Allen SS revolvers, but I have the second gen Colt 1860 stainless and the 1851 stainless....do not want to hijack the thread Ken 44-40 has about the Allen guns so i am asking this here, Ken you seem knowledgable about these guns....my 1860 is a bit outside of the listed serial range for the stainless Colts...how accurate is the serial range data Colt supplied?? Dennis Adler wrote a book about modern Colt percs, and listed data on these stainless revolvers, but I cant find contact data for him.

    With due respect to Mr. Adler and his pretty books, why not go to the real authority on all 2nd gen. Colt percs- Dennis Russell? Dennis wrote THE book about them. He can be reached at
    1401 Shallowford Road #192,
    Roswell, Ga. 30075. He does have a telephone, but you'll have to look it up.

    According to Dennis Russell's book, Colt produced 1,596 "F" series Model F1210, stainless steel Model 1860 Army revolvers, serial #211263s - 213008s from January 1982 through Arpil 1982. Your serial number falls within this range.

    I replied to your e-mail with additional information regarding your stainless 1851 Navy. I hope you find this information useful.
