    It appears to me that Colt is trying to discourage Custom Shop orders with those prices!

    Re: that GB New Frontier, when I add up the costs for the 4 custom shop features: target hammer, Long grip, chamfered cyl and royal blue finish, (~ $12-1500) that still leaves the gun about $1000 over a standard NF price!

    Who did you speak to? The web site still says they are not taking custom shop orders for SAA at this time. https://www.colt.com/page/colt-custom

    The prices are getting out of control.

    One can only reach the conclusion that Colt is trying harder than ever to get out of the SAA business. It saddens me (all of us!) greatly.

    I will not say who i spoke to .... someone in the custom shop.... the site still says only 1911 orders only. They will update that sometime this summer i was told and put up a new SAA custom shop order form like they use to have. Below is from an email i received.

    Here is the breakdown:

    Base Price for Custom Shop SAA - $3450.00
    Two Piece Walnut Grips - $300.00
    Extra Long Back Strap - $625.00
    Bullseye ejector rod - $125.00
    Blue/Case Colored Finish

    The price for the .44-40 with these options would be the same.

    Please let me know if you have any further questions.

    Colt New Frontier, the red headed stepchild of the Colt family. They only made it to try to compete with the Rugers of the day. Colt seems to be leaning towards the PT Barnum school of thought. Problem is this will make every Tom, Dick, and Harry think these price points are acceptable. And I can get nicer walnut for $20 that will let me make 3 sets of grips.
