NEW SASS GUN!!
« on: May 17, 2009, 01:58:25 pm »
As many of you may know, SASS announced earlier this year that the SASS Colt would no longer be available, and from my knowledge, is no longer advertised in the CC.

It seems that SASS has found another manufacturer to take up the SASS brand, and that being Ruger.

At the SASS booth they had a brace of 4 5/8" SS New Vaqueros with a Montado hammer and the SASS Marshal inlayed into the grips.

Coyote Calhoun informed me that the RNV was the new SASS gun.

Support the ones that support the sport!  ;)

I'm glad to hear someone has "picked up the ball".  I'm also glad it was Ruger as that probably means the quality will be better and the price will be lower.
That being said...  I'm also glad I got my SASS Colt.  I'm sure it's one of the last ones made.   :'(

I wonder what percentage of SASS members shoot Rugers.

Santee:

I saw a non-scientific poll once that said 68% of SASS shooters shoot Ruger six-guns.
I'd reckon that is about right for the local clubs I frequently visit.

Well I shoot Rugers, Colt and Remington clones and sometimes real Colts but about 90% of the time I shoots my 4 old model Vaqueros 'cause I know I can bang away all day and not worry about breaking anything.   ;)

Except, if I read the ad correctly, the gun is/will only be available in .357.  :(  Make it in .44 Special or, better, .44-40!  I'd even take it in .45 LC.
Ride to the sound of the guns, but watch out for bushwhackers! Godspeed to all in harm's way in the defense of Freedom! God Bless America!

They are going to do .45 later. I'd take one on .44 Special.  ;)

I only shoot in .45 and I like the barrel length at 5.5 inches. Besides, I pretty much have a matched set of RNVs as it is in that finish anyway.
Yet, I do really like these anyhow, no matter what caliber they come in!  ;D

I just wish they had set it up so you could get your SASS number as the serial number like the Cowboy Fastdraw Association did with Life Members.   Anyone know when the 45 will come out?

Interesting, Rugers are excellent revolvers though so I can understand their decision. I'm curious though, who made the old SASS revolvers?

Another thing is that the guns will only be sold in sets of two. I guess I will have to wait awhile until they show up on CDNN like the 50th Anniversay Blackhawks did. Maybe then I will be able to buy just one. Which reminds me. Anyone know why a Montado should cost so much more than a standard Vaquero?

Doc:

I deal with CDNN a lot.  They're a good outfit, soure sure & for certain!
They really ain't a regular Ruger distibutor, they tell me. 
I reckon I'd watch others too.
