Was looking at the half-full box of 50 rounds purchased with my SAA in the early 70's. At least 25 years since I bought it, confirmed where it shot, and stuck it away.

What's it take to have a new cylinder in acp fitted? Unsure if it's a second or third generation, but it has an 859xxSA ( suffix ) serial number. Can you order a cylinder from Colt? In 45 acp? Find one floating the gun shows ? Or do you have to get a 357, 38/40, 44 spl and have it rechambered.

Penetration? You want penetration? My Bowie Knife's blade gives 13 inches of penetration!!!

Rusty, probably the best way is to let Colt handle it. George
