I have a Colt Lightning that I have had for over 20 years. I replaced a part that allowed it to work in double action again, and it is all there, including a pair of MOP grips, but little finish left on the gun.  I can send you pics and you send me an offer, as it is a gun I really don't have a lot of attachment to, unlike most of the rest.  I can also be contacted at whytelw AT comcast DOT net

I listed not long ago a 1873 rifle and 1st gen colt made in 1898 with letter.  Has been refinished and barrel changed per the letter.  44.40.  I'll let the 1873 go for 1000 as it needs a new magazine tube spring but is accurate.   2500 for the colt saa.

emptied the box some more. I also put the adds for the Colt and Winchester back to the top so you can see the pictures.  I have since found that Dixie Gun Works has the replacement spring  but I have not ordered it yet.

Ive got an original shooter 73 in 38-40, round barrel that's been cut down.  Functions.  I bought it for measurements to make replacement parts and to shoot classic cowboy,   I have the measurements and I can't bring myself to use it roughly.

I have a first gen Colt in 38-40, from 1909, I think.  I had it listed on the Colt forum a while back.  Hammer is a replacement, so some of the guts may not work correct with a correct hammer.  I just shoot it the way it is.  The price in the Colt ad is high, because a few fellows over there like to haggle.  I can't list it here, because I am not an SASS member.

The first gen is listed on post #9 in the for sale link.
