A terrific looking USFA.

Buckaroo Lou:
In my opinion this is a terrific looking USFA revolver, probably because I was a Charlton Heston fan.

Pangaea:
Beautiful gun.  Do you think it is an all USA made one?

Coffinmaker:

 :)  Well Heck  ;)

I realize in the rarefied air of the collectors world, there seems to be some cache attached to an offering of USFA to be ALL USA.  Which frankly, I don't buy into.  I think it's dumb.  It makes no difference.  Either way, they are real fine SA revolvers.

This particular referenced example is particular fine in fact.  I'm not a collector and wouldn't even dream of paying that much money for anything "previously sold at retail" but it is unquestionably a superb example.  Were a "collector" I wouldn't care were it ALL USA or not.  Bottom line is ALL USFA guns are just gussied up Uberti in the final analysis.

That is so wrong (factually incorrect) I wouldn't know where to start. I'm surprised as a gunsmith you would make a statement like that.

You are entitled to your own opinion but you're not entitled to your own facts.

 :)  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??
