Here are some images of my new USFA O.W. Ainsworth, it was ordered on on the 17th of March, and received on the 5th of May.  It is my first U.S. Firearms revolver.  I was interested in owning the earliest version of Colt's New Model Army Metallic Cartridge Revolving Pistol, and this is as close as you can buy in 2010, Colt offers nothing like this.  I apologize for the low quality of the images, I was shooting wide open in low light with no tripod, so the depth-of-field was very shallow.  Anything behind the focus point will be soft.

IT may not be historically correct but I prefer the ivory to the MOB. Must be the Patton in me.

Frank,
Been following your saga here, on the USFA forum board, and at DJ's.  You stated that USFA has no record of you gun, yet it is featured on their own web site.  On the USFA web site go to the "Products" Menu, then select "Custom Shop," then select "Fit & Feel."  Scroll down to the part where they show the gold inlay.  The ivory grips in the picture easily identify the gun as being the one you now own.

Mustang, I have two Single Actions with 7 1/2" barrels,,on in .45colt and one in .44sp/44-40 dual cylinder deal. Both shoot teenie tiny groups at 15 yards,,about an inch high. Just the way I'd have designed them to do were I building them myself. A six oclock hold on anything at that distance and I'm dead center.

I believe beyond  a doubt, that the USFA guns are the best quality in a firearm. Well, of the one's iv owned anyways.

I own one USFA.
It started out as a Rodeo. A buddy of mine had it, I had been wanting to try one out and he needed cash.

Unfortunately, he lived in Las Vegas, where they have gun registration and needed to have it "taken out of his name". I live in Sparks where there is no such requirement, so I went with him to the sheriff's office and did the transfer.

Sheriff wrote the Make and model as "Colt" and "SAA" instead of "USFA" and "Rodeo".
So according to Clark County, I own a Colt SAA with a 4 digit SN!
I loved everything about the gun, except the horrid finish. I tried to buff it to give it that patina look, but in reality it made a new gun look 100+ years old (I have a Colt SAA made in 1903 that looks like it just rolled off the production line yesterday).

So I looked into options and found the best deal from Gary Reeder. He casehardened the frame, black chromed the other parts, some light engraving and it started looking like a real revolver!

Joe Perkins of Outlaw Grips made a one-piece set of stocks exactly like what Russell Crowe used in 3:10 to Yuma.

Kid,
That is one beautiful SAA!  Gary Reeder does some very nice work.  What was the turn around time for the project?

It was long...maybe 6 months. CCH was new to them at the time and they were waiting on chemicals, etc for most of that. He charged me for everything about the same as what Turnbull quoted me for POLISHING!

Nicer case colors than on my 3rd gen SAA, fireblued the screws and engraved a cross where the Rampany Colt would be on an SAA.

Beautiful!  I really like those Bisley style hammers on the short barrel models.
