Do you know a website I can go to to find the date for my serial number 11635. Value as well. This old revolver is in great shape. My Dad and I shot it last about 35 years ago. I wouldn't want to put a new round through it now without a gunsmith giving me the correct round.

I believe they have COLT serial numbers.

Blue Book says 1875.
Depending on condition and originality, it can be worth a lot.
Do not mess with it beyond ordinary cleaning.

Well, if it's a .45, the "correct round" should be .45 Colt, also known as .45 Long Colt; however, you might get slightly frustrated by the Wal-Mart clerk when he can't seem to find where they store their black powder .45 Colt rounds.

Yes, if you're going to fire it, it's really playing with fire to shoot anything other than black powder rounds. I have .45 Colt SAA's (Peacemakers) from all three generations, and I shoot virtually nothing but black powder rounds in all of them. I stuff 'em myself, though, by the thousands.

I shoot everything under the sun, but these are my favorites.
