  • In 1960, there were no knockoff Colt revolvers,bet they were both armed with Colt Single action Model 1873's. Usingthe Colt SAA as an example, I can prove there is no such thing as inflation. In 1873, you could buy a new Colt SAA for a $20 gold piece. You can still buy a new Colt SAA for a $20 gold piece.
