I posted this gun elsewhere, so I imagine you have the info, but just in case, CB658, 45 Colt, Cowboy.  The only date I can find is red ink 9/11/09 on the safety & instruction manual.  Red ink has also underlined many places in the manual under important information.  I didn't know if this was owner's or manufacturers dates & markings.

My Single Action USFA .44 Special has a serial number of 28657. It is a 4 3/4, full dome blue Single Action model with black rubber grips. My invoice from my gun dealer is August 2011 but the gun was original ordered in 2009. I'm pretty sure it was made in 2011, close to the date is was received. The box contains no date information or test target, only a form to register it for a "Lifetime Warranty"...

If your gun was ordered in 2009 but not delivered until Aug 20011, the build process wasn't started until Jun/Jul 2011.  Any red underling or highlighting was done by the original owner

Gary, Any idea how high the numbers went as the shop closed?

Hi,
I have a Matt blue Rodeo S/N S667 I bought about 3 years ago from a guy at my gun range.  I'd like to know about what year it was made, I'm guessing is was one of the last Rodeo's before USFA closed up.  It's a 45 Colt with 5 1/2 barrel.  I have since turned it into a Premier model.  Nicest SAA I have even before I had it redone by Longhunters in Amarillo.  Checked my matching box and it has a date of 2006 inside the lid on the USFA Label.  The owner's manual has a date of 2004

I have a USFA bought 01/15/2017 from Main Street Guns, Bayboro, NC, it is Bone Blue, with a serial number of D913. Can you give me any information on it?

By the picture and the number it looks to be a USA made Rodeo.

I guess I should add my paltry few as well.

Henry Nettleton 47119, a Uberti parts gun, bbl is USPFA, I got it used in 1999 or 2000.
Rodeos, A720 and A724,45 Colt, 4 3/4", Uberti parts guns, bought around 1997 or 98, I had to wait almost 6 months after I ordered them.
Rodeo Sheriff, SMA049, matte blue, USA gun, bought around 2007.
Doug Turnbull pair, 44 WCF, 7 1/2", BP frames 737DT, 738DT, bought around 2011 or 12. Look to be US parts.

Well, there's my half dozen, hope they help add to the confusion.

I have two to add:

4 3/4 45 Colt Pre War SN 23659  Has cone firing pin but hammer does not appear to have hand cut checkering. USA gun?

5 1/2 45 Colt Pre War SN 26014  Appears to be 100% USA gun.

Bought both guns in 2011 used.  Have no idea when they were originally purchased, sorry.

Thanks for the additions gentlemen.


Fully 100% USA made guns started around 22500.  So you are well above those numbers on 23659.  You should have hand cut checkering on the hammer. 

Here are three of the hand cut USFA hammer patterns used...but there could be others as well.

Ah, yes!...  The hammer on 23659 is the spitting image of the hammer pictured on the far left.

I was comparing it to the hammer on 26014 which is like the one on the far right.

Interesting that they would use patterns that are so different.

Thanks!

Hammer on the far left, with the border, should be on a black powder frame.

Yahoody,

23659 is definitely not a black powder frame.

Beautiful gun either way.  Hammer fits..and no question it was hand checkered early on Smiley
