    WoW! That is a crazy price for any SAA....USFA Rodeo in this case.

    Andy here on the forum sent me this auction. Thought I'd share.
    Shill bids is my guess. Gun Broker is gonna hit the seller pretty hard for their % of that $3000

    Never seen a USFA hammer so poorly checkered as in photo #24.

    Any way I thought the auction unusual since a true USA made, matte blue Rodeo can be had for around $1000, that is actually NIB. This one certainly is not NIB.

    Been awhile since I have seen an all USA made on went for $1000 on GB, but yeah for maybe a little bit more. But this one price is crazy, doubt if shill bidders, both of them have decent to high number of ratings. Guess the one guy got totally carried away, have the feeling he wont complete the purchase.

    I wish I could write a "for sale" ad like that.

    If you have spiritlaker bidding on a Gunsrc auction, fold and walk away. Just look at his ratings and who most of them are from. As I recall this has been discussed before.

    More here...

    Curious why someone that has been "caught" is still an active member here on the forum. Seems odd to me.

    A lot of good observations on the USFA rodeo auction. I agree with Joel that there is some salesmanship in the auction. Specifically with terms like “Limited” and “1873” Rodeo. The Rodeo model ( did USFA call it the 1873 Rodeo ??) is the most available USFA model of the “limited” models. But hey. No harm no foul with all that right.
    Secondly. cosmo’s mention of the hammer and overall used condition is observations that would make this Rodeo closer to $1K (or less ) than it would be to the top shelf prices of $1300 or $1400 for those “high brow” buyers and for USA parts- NIB Rodeo’s. That serial is a fairly early D prefix. That hammer knurling looks uberti to me. Mixed part still? Anyway.

    I don’t know which is more disconcerting—. The fact that a Rodeo could foolishly have a buyer for that much.. or whatever is going on there with seller/bidder has continued apparently. I think the latter.


    Btw. I believe the most that I’ve seen any factory condition NIB Rodeo sell for was the truly “limited” Heritage Rodeo. USFA made it for one year that came with their faux ivory grips and HR serial prefix, still with the matte finish. A buyer snagged it with a gunbroker Buy Now of about $1600+ not too long ago.. and that was a very good profit if an original owner sold it. I don’t have one and as avid collector as I am.. still didn’t jump on it with the price.

    That's a high price. Do y'all reckon I could get the seller to sell my house?

    Spiritlaker has quite a reputation for his GB bidding, especially with this seller.
