Colt is once again making SAAs. Starting at $1799 for an actual Colt in 7 1/2".
I can certainly appreciate why you would want this particular model.  But have you considered an Italian 7th Cavalry?  Prices on those have NOT skyrocketed, and you could have one in your hands waaaay easier and cheaper than the USFA, even if you opt for the traditional bone case hardening. They are still being made, after all.  Then continue your search for the USFA.  You can easily sell it later if you want.  I love mine:

Good luck, and I appreciate your service.  ;)

Let me also add: the Classifieds is the right place for this, but you should also make a post on the USFA forum on this site.  Those guys are always looking, and some of them might not check the Classifieds.
Good Afternoon from Oklahoma,

I've been looking to buy a USFA Custer Battlefield SAA Revolver since they first came out years ago. The problem then was, I was in Ft. Hood as a member of the 7th Cavalry( I was in the 7th from 2008-2012) and I couldn't afford one. Being in the 7th had been a dream of mine since childhood. I was a history fanatic since I was a child I read and watched as many documentaries as I could particularly from the Civil War-Vietnam Era as well as Aviation History. Growing up in Oklahoma I heard lots about Custer and even went to school with relatives one of his Pawnee Scouts.

One Day I saw 'Little Big Man' and was introduced to the 'Character' of General Custer and his 7th Cavalry. For some reason, even as a kid I liked what I saw, even though what I saw was far from the truth (As Far as the Portrayal of Custer). That film had a lot to do with turning a True American Warrior and Hero as well as his men into a band of bloodthirsty murderers attacking innocent Native Americans, one after the other after the other. It also had everything to do with me attempting to set the record straight about the man who Hollywood and a One Sided Media Villainized. (Somehow it's even worse in 2022).

None of the above is important, just a little introduction I suppose. Anyways, for the last two years I've been trying to find one of the USFA Custer Battlefield Single Action Army's. I've come very close but would forget to check my inbox on a forum for a week and miss one. Or get outbid. Or being unable to afford one again.

Over the last year I've been looking extremely hard for one. I've tried just about every forum until someone on the Colt forum told me to check out this site. I've watched a local group of Cowboy action shooters come to a Range I go to for National Match M1 Competition. I always loved it. I played Drums in High School and at Ft. Hood was in a Fife and Drum band which played 'Garry Owen' (Among others as well) but Garry Owen due to the history of the regiment, and I can't describe the feeling it gives you. I was a Cavalry Scout but we played Garry Owen on Fife in Drum on both of my deployments. I've been to Little Bighorn 4 times and played it twice on 'Last Stand Hill' the first time it was just me and the Drum, the second I found an outstanding Fife player and the Two of us played it there. Both times were an emotional experience. Anyways, I've been playing with the Cowboy Action Shooters who have a good string, drum, brass, and fife ensemble.

I keep rambling, again I apologize. I am looking to buy one of the USFA Custer Battlefield Single Action's. I would be forever indebted to someone out there who has one they would be willing to sell. Plus I couldn't imagine a better birthday Gift to myself (Feb 3). Regardless, I'm glad to be a member here and I truly appreciate any help and your time for reading this.

If you happen to have one you want to sell, please send me a PM.

(I had a guy reply to one of my previous WTB ads for one and someone replied to my post that they had one they would sale. So when I PM'd him he told me someone saw his post on my WTB thread and beat me to it).

Thanks again,


"Garry Owen"!

Were you shooting full house 45-70 in a carbine? Ouch
The cavalry loads were .45-55 and aren't bad in my carbine.
For cowboy shooting I load 30 grains and a 300 grain bullet. VERY mild recoil and reasonably accurate
