USFA Single Actions
« on: March 24, 2007, 12:49:25 AM »
Anyone familiar w. these?  I've been thinking that I could use a nice "cowboy" gun.

The best single action made by anyone. ;D  All made in Ct and fitted together like Colt did in the 50's. Tom

Howdy -  Amen to what Tom said.   It's a Colt, without Colt's name on it, and many think  - better, especially if you are going to use it.

Well guys, after placing an order on some USFA guns, I was talking with Doug the president, a good friend, and I placed an order for a special engraved single action in .45LC and 4.75" bbl. I think it will look close to the Pony Express gun. I have to thank aglifter for giving me the idea and getting myself into trouble. It will be a first, as I have never bought or sold an engraved gun after all these years. I will find out what RJ knows, its special and really nice.   Tom

Reinz, I will of course. Go to their web site and look at the Pony express gun, very similar.  ;D  Tom

Checked out their website.....very well made stuff.  I especially liked the "snub" model. 8)

Here's a link to the pony express gun, Irishguard ordered:

BTW, that sight could get me into a LOT of trouble -- they have some very neat toys...

Tom:

That's a beautiful revolver! Just looking at its photograph makes my right hand itch to hold it.  

In the 1970s, I purchased a Blackhawk 357 Magnum 6-1/2" Stainless  . . . loved that revolver . . . used to pass some time when no one was around practicing fast draws, spins, and border shifts with it . . . pure fantasy stuff . . . sold it before Cowboy Action Shooting became popular.  Selling it was probably a good thing. If I had kept it, I'd probably be into black-powder guns and the whole nine yards of CAS by now. And I need another expensive hobby like I need the proverbial hole in the head -- lame pun intended.   ;)
