Picked this up bout 2 weeks ago, but have been unable to get to the range. The fit and finish blows away my Colt 3rd Gen SAA, and was some $350 less with color-case hammer. Next purchase from USFA will be a Flattop. Here's the SAA
All kidding aside, my FFL let's me order guns straight from anyplace I want. I got this for $975 shipped to the FFL, with optional CC hammer. I thought that was a great deal, especially considering the quality of the firearm. Some purists will say "it's not a Colt", but I say "I have a Colt, and this one's better". :lol:
USFA also has a model called the US pre-war which mimcks the 2nd Gen Colt SAA with the blueing and appointments.
I really think these guns will come into their own, and eventually become as highly sought after as the pre-war Colts.
Then again, who's to know. :?
The thing about the Ruger is simple. When you find a exceptional one, there is nothing on the planet that can touch it. :mrgreen:
I've managed to find three new models that will outshoot any gun. One 44Mag that I will bench shoot out to 300 yards against any standard sighted rifle. A .41 Mag that will be buried with me. And a .45 brass framed convertible that is hyper active on steel plates at 15 yards, it's definitely the gun and it's Karma...can't be me
But out of the box, factory....USFA's most recent editions are a gun that others get compared to.
(Disclaimer) Don't own one...shot a bunch and am lookin' forward to buyin' my first..... :mrgreen:
