    And, in the meantime, Standard is busily not producing their clone.

    And Colt is busily not producing, hardly any......
    which leaves us with an Uberti / Pietta or none of the above.

    At times like these, I'm in that demographic that's comforted by the "I got mine already" saying.
    You, on the other hand, may not be.

    Maybe so, but at least I've had a couple of Colt's SAA, and can therefore not justify paying MSRP + 1K just to have mine.

    It's only money, and getting what you truly want is a better use of it than settling for a lesser product.

    (That does not mean that you should try this at home, or that you should expect the same mileage.)
    (My opinions are my own.)
    (Just excessively glad to have what I have.)

    That's fine and I don't disagree. If I had the money I'd be looking for another 2nd Generation SAA 5 1/2 .45.
    You see I've had several Colt's SAA revolvers, so when I post that today's Uberti's are good enough, I have something to base it on. A Volkswagen is better then walking.

    Speaking of 5 1/2 Single Action Army Revolvers I took a trip over to the Colt Web site and the 5 1/2 is no longer listed. Not that it makes any difference they don't have any 7 1/2 or 4.75 either.

    How are things looking now? I came across Standard (and subsequently this thread) looking for US made repro's after passing on a pair of consecutive USFA Rodeos. They sold for just north of $2500 in near mint condition, and I'll probably kick myself later, but I wasn't confident in my knowledge of the pricing.

    Another question--how does the FA model 97 compare is size to the SAA? I know its not meant to be a clone, but it would fill the gap I have.

    The Model 97 is very similar in size, only very slightly smaller than a Colt SAA. My 5 1/2" 44 Special Colt is one ounce heavier than my M97 of the same length. In the bigger bores (41,44,45) the M97's are five shot cylinders. Mine fits in just about any holster made for a SAA. It is really an apples to oranges comparison I think other than the size. You sure won't find a M97 cheaper. They are awesome guns though.

    At my age,and being with Colts since the late 60s,and only discovering the SAA last year I’m out of time ! No time
    to check out the Colt “wannabes “. So the ONLY thing I’m buying is Colt,the real deal or nothing!
