    I picked up a NIB consecutive numbered pair of 4 ¾” USFA Custom Competition Rodeos in 45 LC today. They have been tuned and have great trigger pulls (they included Long Hunter “Jim Finch” Certificates). The same guy I bought the Radeos from had a NIB 5 ½” USFA deluxe .22 LR SAA (Plinker) w/ an extra magnum cylinder that I also bought. It is absolutely the most beautiful SAA that I have ever handled. The case hardening is brilliant and the blue is the old Colt royal blue. I picked up all three for a few hundered dollars more than a single new Colt SAA. They all came in protective cloth bags with boxes and paperwork look right out of the 19th century, really cool.

    I have not really heard much about USFA SAAs before today, but man they make quality products. Does anyone else have experience w/ USFA SAAs?

    The USFA SAA are very, very nice. Many people prefer them now to the Colts, and, as you noted, the price is right.

    You'll love them.

    No, but I'd like to! :D

    Those Rodeos look really nice, and you did it the right way by going through Long Hunter. I looked into that a while ago. Good job!

    I'd like to try one of their "Omni" gripped models, like the Omni-Target. I can't see ordering one to "see if I like it", though...
