Description

The Colt Single Action Army (also known as the Peacemaker, Single Action Army, SAA, Model P and Colt 45) is a single action revolver with a revolving cylinder holding six rounds. It was designed for the U.S. government service revolver trials of 1873 by Colt's Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company, today Colt's Manufacturing Company, and adopted as the standard military service revolver until 1892.

The Colt Single Action Army has been offered in over 30 different calibers and various barrel lengths. Its overall appearance has remained consistent since 1873. Colt has discontinued its production twice, but brought it back due to popular demand. The revolver was popular with ranchers, lawmen, and outlaws alike, but current models are mostly bought by collectors and reenactors. Its design has influenced the production of numerous other models from other companies.

Tanakas series of SAA revolvers are all built around the same internals and action with differing barrel lengths and finish types. Both gas and BBs go into the chamber block which can be removed for loading/gassing as well as maintenance; in varying barrel lengths, these weapons clock in at around the 270 to 290 fps range on HFC gas. Strictly speaking, Tanaka revolvers are not built for green gas and attempting to run it on the higher pressure can result in anomalous errors and damage.

In any finish, Tanaka SAAs have to be one of the most sexy designs out there; given, the old west is not universal taste but for those partial to the classical age the SAA is a quintessential piece of engineering which marries form with function to deliver great performance, high quality with beautiful curves and lines.
