Hopalong, I will just say this. I would rather have your gun over any other SAA made by any manufacturer other than the original Colt. People don't know how to admire a work of art. Your gun is a magnificent piece of work and should be looked as such. I love Colts but if I couldn't have one my second choice would be USFA. The rest are okay but hold no flame to the two I mentioned. I also feel that only your opinion matters if the gun is worth it or not. I love it wish it was mine. If I was going to buy a Ruger and put all that money into engraving it, well lets just say I would choose to do something else with that cash. Like I said one beautiful looking six shooter.
