Chief Rick Posted June 16, 2011 Share Posted June 16, 2011 What exactly is the company celebrating? I can understand the M1911 having 100th Anniversary stamped on the slide. Simple math: 2011 minus 1911 equals 100. But why are the SAA's being stamped 175th Anniversay? The model was introduced in 1873. 2011 - 1873 = 138. Doesn't really roll off the tongue smoothly. The Paterson was introduced in 1836 - 175 years ago - Colt's first revolver as we pretty much know it today. As Colt's no longer produces any other revolver I can see that angle, but a little misleading in my opinion. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
