You probably need a professional appraiser for the saddle. 

If the pistol doesn't have a proven historical pedigree, I doubt that it would be worth a large sum.

Agreed. Most of the value in them comes from provenance or sentiment. My dad carried a SAA 45 in a self-made holster and loop-belt as a deputy down on the Mexican border when I was a kid back in the wild and woolly 1950's. I have the leather, but he peddled the SAA when I was still too young to be in line for it.  The leather is priceless to me, next to worthless to anyone else. I'd pay a whole lot of money to stick that SAA back into its home leather, but the current owner wherever he is probably just sees it as another well worn pistola .

I think there is something fishy here.

Remember what happened to the guy who picked up an old pair of binoculars from there and took them home? It is illegal to remove or possess anything from the site.

If you have a problem with somebody saying something you don't like. Tell Jon or a mod. Don't call them names. John is a good guy and i'm sure meant no harm.

I would have edited your post if I could have. A mod should have, but these mods don't do a thing as a mod.

I'm a mod and it's my job to stop trouble before it starts. It's as simple as that doctor.

Thanks for the laugh.

My apologizes to all, looking back at strong eagles first post I am dumbfounded at my response. I completely misread the post!!  My mind is easily sidetracked and my wife tells me several times a day I have ADD. Sad

Join the club. I frequently forget a word in the middle of a sentence.

Getting Medicare and free fishing & hunting licenses are the only benefits of old age.

 You get free hunting licenses? Lucky! We get free fishing license but they're thinking of taking that away. Free hunting licenses would save me $130.

Pete, we not only get the free licenses, we get to accumulate preference points and enter tough-to-draw areas.
The hunting still sucks though. I only saw 12 deer all season while hunting. Most were out of range.

I doubt i'd see 12 bucks here in one season. Mature muleys are not easy to find when there's so much public land.
