A black USFA pistol sock on gunbroker just sold for $71.75 with 5 different bidders bidding. Is that a typical price?

Someone probably lost one in the wash and really wanted one to have a set.

Didn't you read?  They're "Very hard to come by." 

Plus, shipping was a mere $9.00 on top.

Wow.

There is a cult following of sorts when it coms to anything USFA. Colt's are the same.  I've seen a black Colt SAA box go for  > $200.00.

2nd gen collectors aren't near as bad though.

Maybe it's a magic sock. Put any gun in there for 10 minutes and it comes out perfectly timed, perfect fit and finish and perfectly sighted in?

I'd give $71.25 plus shipping for one that would do all that! Grin Grin

Oh I wasn't laughing. I meant you put any other gun in the sock and it comes out perfect like a USFA.

Those pistol "socks" are made by the Ideal Outdoor Manufacturing Company in Sykesville Pennsylvania. (idealoutdoorstyle.net) I saw their label on my USFA sock and ordered several more from them, plain - no logos -  for my other handguns. They cost a lot less than $71! I tried lookin at their website tonight but the product illustrations were not functional and I couldn't find prices. Maybe their IT system is being repaired?

A simple silk-screen job can turn that 'Ideal Outdoor Manufacturing Company' sock into something pretty special, can't it?

Food for thought...

Well, Fine Frank Finkel make finely fried fries in his Fryer for his Fried Fries Friends.  So I suppose if we can copy Frank Finkel's fine fries in our Fine Fryer and call them Frank Finkels Fine Fries as Cloned, we should be able to Make Sock Clones.  Or not.

I own a pistol sock that has the logo of The Olde Fontenelle Gun Shop screen printed on it. I've had it for several decades, and it's a prized piece of nostalgia to me. They're long out of business, but I have many a memory of fun times being educated in that shop.

As the MasterCard ad goes, it's value to me is: priceless.

It's comforting to know that all you gents who feel that $ 71.00 is a fool's money, would more than happy to sell any USFA sock you came across for a couple of bucks.   

Hope all those on this site are doing well.

 Good point Pangaea. I can see how if one had a complete set except for the sock it would be worth it to get the sock. I think this shows that USFA's are very collectible.
