    Colt 1st Gen and some 2nd Gen are the only "true" SAA's
    Colt stopped making a good SAA when they stopped the 2nd Gen production.
    Colt 3rd Gen SAA's are: Great, mediocre, horrible, worst Colt ever produced, best Colt ever produced, the good ones are 4th Gen, 4th Gen doesn't exist, 4th Gen does exist, Custom Shop SAA's are worth $3K+, are not worth $3K+, any new manufacture Colt SAA is worth $1900, $2000, $2100, more or less
    Uberti's are great, Uberti's are junk.
    USFA are great, USFA are junk.
    Standard...(see above)
    Colt will stop SAA production, Colt won't stop SAA production.
    Anyone can obviously tell the difference in 0.020 cylinder window width, are you crazy? No one can see that with the naked eye.
    I will stop there......
    Yep.. That about sums it up perfectly.

    You forgot all third gen colts are made from uberti part, no only some of them, no none of them, no only the ones contracted out to uberti, but not the custom shop

    No problem with the gun definitions and I get your point.

    But..

    Experts believe that the naked eye – a normal eye with regular vision and unaided by any other tools – can see objects as small as about 0.1 millimeters. A trained eye can easily detect .010" difference in small object sizes. .02" bigger frame windows might be invisible to some and glaringly obvious to others.

    That said, the obvious error might make one question the accuracy of your entire statement

    Add: the .38-40 round is too weak. But the .38-40 round is very powerful.

    I have no doubt it has been updated...there are subtle differences between the USFA and Standard guns

    milling centers aren't cheap. They had to go some where. All that was discussed else where and was eventually confirmed I believe
    I recall one time, when I was visiting USFA on business, Doug, Gary and Peter showcased their new palletized Mazak machining line for me................It was pretty impressive..........Load the tombstone pallets, insure all the cutting tools are in spec............Push the GO button, turn off the lights, lock the door and go home.................When they returned the next morning, they'd have finished parts ready for deburring and polishing..........

    I have no idea where that machining line is today.............it could be in New Britain, at Standard,..........or if could be in Italy.......Somewhere, I think I heard Italy.........Doug and Pete will know.

    Pete lives a few miles away from me...............I haven't seen (or bothered) him in quite a few years..............I think I need to call and touch base with him.

    I don't have one, but your comment makes me think I might want one.
    According to their FAQ: "27. Is the gun sighted for windage and elevation?Yes, the guns are shot in a steady rest vice at 20 yards, and sighted in with Remington 250grain lead, 45 Colt ammunition."
