Thank you for the replies. Since I've posted the thread I've had one ordered and I currently await it's arrival. If I'm correct, it's an "old" model. Meaning, it has no spring loaded base pin latch. Instead, it has a set screw that holds the base pin in place located in the front of the frame. My understanding is that this was the way the first generation Colt single actions were designed before the idea of the spring loaded latch. The spring loaded latch system seems to be the accepted method on most single actions I've seen and handled. I am anxious to receive this gun. I was able to order it at a good price too so that always makes spending the money a little less painful. Thanks again.
