On this week’s “Gun of the Week” video preview, American Rifleman staff take to the range for a closer look at Uberti USA’s special edition "Teddy" revolver, a replica of Colt's New Model 1873 SAA.
This tired, worn-out Colt Single Action Army received a new lease on life, thanks to the efforts of Wiley Clapp and a team of talented gunsmiths.
Dedicated this year to Dale Evans, the "Queen of the West," this drawing includes a matched pair of "America Remembers Dale Evans-Happy Trails" Colts, in .45 caliber with 5.5" barrels, stag grips, and gold cylinders and screws.
The Colt Single Action Army, or “SAA” revolver, is doubtless the classic sixgun most associated in our folklore with the American West. Introduced in 1873, the basic design remained-with a few interruptions-in production and is manufactured today by Colt and other firms.
