    Probably a good plan after watching people at gun shows through the years.

    The "engraving" looks suspect but the case colors look like Turnbull.

    They have to be.

    Really? Who do you think bought all those USFA's? Why do you think they bought them? And how well is Colt keeping up with demand these days?

    PS, he said $1499. Which probably means a street price of $1200-$1300.

    He should know his product better but we don't send our techs to trade shows either. We send sales staff and marketing knobs. Knowing every single thing about the product is not in their job description.

    Here we go again. We should know better than to use the word clone or replica. It brings CraigC out of hiding.

    Those prices would be a deal in my mind if they're colt quality , I paid $1850 for mine and that was a bargain from what I've seen as most on GB and other sites are mostly over 2k . I'd sure like to see one up close.

    These are under $600.00 and seem to work fairly well.

    "Californian" - EMF Company

    I have a couple and they shoot just fine (they are for sure NOT Colts though).

    I would have a hard time with the price point on the one in the video.

    Look at the flutes on the cyl in the video. Not very impressive. Awful CCH.

    Seems to be a demo with the firing pin ground off.

    I don't see them selling many if any of those for Colt prices!

    May have a transfer bar system the firing pin contacts.

    LOL, I'm hoping Standard may be a good source for parts It looks like it replicates a second gen pretty good but the loading gate is more similar to a first. The straps intrigue me since good, sharp parts are hard to find that actually fit and look correct on a Colt. Time will tell.

    Tell you what , I don't have a ton of money but I'd be willing to invest in an idea like that that's hell bent on doing it right. I think theirs a good market for a quality , high quality clone out there.

    I know what you mean. I would invest in a modern Merwin and Hulbert, but that venture has been tried and failed. Such a pity.
