I have been trying to get a pair of the 8 INCH Crusaders for a long time now. They only made 51 each of the 44 magnums and 45 Colts. Made a deal off site so $4200 for the pair shipped no tax. These are so rare and beautiful engraved guns. Matched serial number #21 and in original matching would cases! I am selling my pair of 6 inch for $2600 if anyone is interested and I have one 8 INCH 44 Magnum also for sale $1800 If you notice there is one with a zebra grip one with a plain grip only explanation I got is the 44 magnums came with the zebra. I'm taking the zebra off my other gun so my matched pair will both have zebra's. The 6 inch guns were still very rare only 333 45 Colts were made and 431 of the 44 magnums were made!Screenshot-2024-03-31-1.52.15-AM.pngImage Enlarger

Yup, zebra came with the 44 only. I would not put a zebra on the 45. Keep it stock. BTW, I suspect the gold crusader is not 14 carat gold, but gold plated.

  Also, Snake-eye and I have shot a 45. We are in a very rare group I think. It was one of mine that had a minor cosmetic flaw. We didn't shoot it enough to ascertain it's accuracy. The bullet did leave the barrel.

Nice find Stan, congrats! And thanks for showing them off. cool-pics

I assume the "1948" on the left side of the frame refers to the first year for High Standard?

I still do not understand the date. It says on the other part of the gun 50th anniversary 1927 to 1977 also my other one has a different date on the side. This is my single one 8 inch engraved it has 1961 in the same place my others say 1948. It was part of the engraving as the 6 inch guns have nothing in that place. A question may be Ole Dog can answer. The six inch guns are still very nice also. IMG_5109.JPGImage Enlarger
