USFA CSS / Re: A terrific looking USFA.
« Last post by Coffinmaker on June 22, 2022, 01:49:17 PM »

 :)  Lou  ;)

There is no doubt USFA found THE MOST expensive method to manufacture their SA.  USFA also manufactured the most precise SA on the market.  To their doom.  At the price point, the guns should have been ready to play right out of the box.  They wern't.  It took a goodly amount of work to make them user friendly and useable for our game.

A much better choice for someone who wants to actually use their SA, whether for goofing off or competing in our game, a much more reasonable purchase was and is a pair of Pietta GW IIs.  Excellent, serviceable PAIR of guns for less than the price of USFA or Colt.  Colt, also way over priced and way under built.

As to your original post.  That is a superb example.  Absolutely the Biz.  Absolutely not worth just shy of Eight Grand, or if you will, add shipping and insurance and your right at Eight Grand.

People are still Contagious.  Avoidance is Suggested.

Back to the original post and point, the OP calls to attention
 a USFA SAA that is a "CHARLTON HESTON PROTOTYPE COMMEMORATIVE" beautified by Turnbull for the asking price of $7750.00   !!!!

Now if it was actually Moses's or Ben Hur's gun ...  ;)

That is really funny  ;D   

My reference was to the looks of the revolver and not the asking price. I still think it is a terrific looking revolver.

Would I spend that much for it? Depends on how badly I might want it, and certainly not unless I was well enough off so that amount was like a very far lesser amount is to my current financial status.  :)

Wish I had metal working skills like that.  Looks great.  Also, a very functional sheath.
Thank you. Really it isn't all that difficult to make one. You just have to keep it from getting overheated when shaping it.

Yo TK, glad to hear you are doing okay, still praying for you and your family while you're deployed. Roger, thanks for the update on Delmonico, and don't terrorize the Intern [unless they drink Starbucks!]. 82 here already, supposed to hit 96 today with only 75% humidity. Anyhoo, I'm gonna stay inside as much as possible and drink my coffee this AM.
Y'all have a good day.

Spoke to Del, he's still on track to get released on Friday afternoon.
He's looking forward to being back on CAS City and apricates the well wishes.

Jodi and I had been together 4 or 5 years before I went on location for "Alamo, the Price of Freedom".
During those 16 weeks absents (She in Miami, and I in Texas) the heart grows fonder. 

I have new student (Antropoligy major) intern joining me at the Museum today.
We will be working on WW 1 & WW 2 exhibits rehab, adding and representing the existing displays over the next few weeks.

Guessers were on point; it was rather present Temp wise yesterday @ 88 ° and they say today will be the same and no rain predicted.
Central Florida in JUNE  ???  I'll take it

Evening all. Or morning. Heck,  don’t even know what time it is here, much less there ::)

Another blustery day here. 102 and windy. Had another sandstorm, a little worse than the last.  We lost power yesterday at around 1:30am, and didn’t get it back until almost 8:30. Makes life interesting.

Mrs. TK and I hit 6 months on the 3rd. We’ve been together for almost 5 years though.

Y’all stay safe over there.

IMHO, if you are going to lay out that kind of bread, go with the Colt. A Colt is a Colt. All the rest are just wannabes. That said, I am happy with my Ubertis and Piettas, and I have more of them.  ;D
