Texas Gun Collectors Association

TGCA Foundation
Fall 2007 Fundraiser

Last year a gun very similar to this one was sold at the TGCA fall auction, realizing a net gain in excess of $3,000.00 for the Association. That gun and the one below were from a series of thirty made available by special order of members in the mid to late eighties. In actual fact thirty-one guns were made as one was the prototype and was so numbered. That was the gun sold last year.

This gun was ordered and delivered to R.L. Wilson, noted author of numerous firearms related articles and books, and was later sold at auction. TGCA bought it back and there is now a two page Colt letter included in the package.

This revolver was sold at the Fall 2007 auction on Saturday, 15 September 2007, and the proceeds will be divided between the association and the philanthropic foundation fund now being established. TGCA will use the first $3,000.00 to help fund the next Foundation Fundraiser, and the balance will be split between the association's general treasury and the Foundation Fund, the lion's share going to the fund.
