Presently 77° headed for 92° guessers say precipitation 25%

A new exhibit is coming tomorrow to its new home at the museum, an original WW2 era Liberty Ship lifeboat.
We have been rearranging space for its 26-foot length and 8.5-foot beam.

USFA CSS / Re: A terrific looking USFA.

:)  Well Hi DaveT  ;)

Ok, let me see.  Way back in the beginning, USPFA began existence, using imported Uberti Major parts and assemblies, a well as functional internals, final finished and assembled here.  Very Fine finishing indeed.  Really fine guns.

Then, USFA sourced their own machine tools and CNC and began making their parts "in house."  It didn't happen over night, but it did in fact happen.  ALL USA parts is a FACT.  But, here is the rub:

The CNC and Machine tools were set-up and programed to produce parts of the exact same dimensions as the previously imported Uberti Parts.  So, if you will, USFA became a CLONE of Uberti.  Very well made CLONE of Uberti.  Hence, my descriptive of "Gussied-Up Uberti."  Duplicated to the point I use to mix and match Uberti parts as "drop in" and "bolt on."

Now, let us add to the story.  You wanna guess where the USFA machine tools went??  Complete with imbedded CNC programming??

I see where you are coming from, but my 2 USA made guns, the Uberti cylinder from Navy Arms Cattlemen does not fit into the frame.  The frame is too small.   Yet a Colt 2nd generation fits into them, perfectly.  The timing is perfect.  What gives?  I do not know. Maybe someone can answer.

I have been watching the price of Uberti Parts guns go up in value over the last year.  They are going for as much as the USA made guns went for last year.  I have spreadsheet on the prices.  I hope the USA made ones have gone up just as much, since I got two.  If my computer with the info wasn't in the shop getting a new screen, I would post the weighted average price increases. 

I think it just demand.  Colt is a long waiting period, Cimarron only has Uberti that are not 4 clicks, and Pietta are low or out of stock.  What is left, in a good SAA, USFA part guns. Then you got Uncle Joe screwing with guns.

I think I paid NIB around $1,100.00 for mine 44-40, 7.5". The most popular is 4.75".

I have a paper note in the gun box that 5.5" 44-40 at the Rock Island Auction went for $2950.00 +18.5% buyer premium S/N 22598 in 2020.

That so when I roll the seven, my nephew doesn't give them a away for nothing.
