Well I had been hesitant to mention these but here goes. Saw these at Shot and then two weeks ago at SCI. CMSC acquired most of the USFA machinery when Doug shut down. They were probably 10 miles apart (with Colt halfway between). CSMC set up Standard for their gun projects outside of their M21, Fox, RBL, A10 etc. they are now making ARs (with expertise from the turmoil at Stag Arms (same town), m1911s, and SAAs (which are quite nice in person) made on the old USFA machinery and to their old specs. Doug did some setup consulting for Tony to get them started but they soon parted ways. The SAAs seemed quite nice. I did not shoot them but closely inspected 4 or 5. The ARs and 1911s seemed rather pedestrian but I think that is their target market. I did tell them that although the SAA guns looked very, very nice, they were priced $2-300 to high. I do know the Colt guys were very curious about this development.

I've been watching their web site ever since this thread began. Today I noticed that they now show their SAA, along with their 1911. The only SAA shown lists for $1399, case hardened, and available in .45 only.

If they are as well built as the domestic USFA's, it will great to have another option for a premium SAA. Hopefully other variations, configurations and chamberings will follow.

It's there $1399, I might call them tomorrow and see if I can learn more. I would want to see one before I'd consider buying.
I know it's heresy to many of you guys, but I really like my latest Ruger New Vaquero purchase - it's a .357 Talo Edition. The fit & finish are pretty darn nice IMO, and it looks more like the Colt than the standard NV models. They also come in .45 Colt.
Ruger makes a very good single action, I have two of them. A Bisley in 45 colt and super Blackhawk 44 mag. Something about the colt profile and the 4 clicks that turn me on.
I received emails from some different guys in Single action grip making that took notice of the Shot Show video interview on gunblast.
I'm glad you got to put your hands on it to get an idea of what might be coming out to the market soon. I know that behind the scenes here, as we talk via email amongst the lads, the expectations are high for this to be a nice single action.
Having the CNC machinery is an obvious necessity to produce, which they have. I hear another key ingredient of producing a single action masterpiece is a master armorer that settles for only the best. Best of luck to this new endeavor.
