Colt Single Action Army Revolver- This classic can be viewed from any angle, but you need to get really close and intimate with some guns. The mother-of pearl grips panels reveal their shimmering nacre texture & one can observe how the gold wire inlays were added. The luminescent glow of the golden Colt logo in the grips also makes this magnified view a special part of this pistol.
