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

(Just excessively glad to have what I have.)
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.
"I like Colts and will die that way"
First girlfriend in highschool had a Volks.
Fond memories there, proving you CAN have good times with a Bug. And IN a Bug.
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.
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!
