Yea man, those things are crazy expensive, I've seen and this is serious, lately between 3,000 to 8,500 bucks, I'm currently in the market for one but I want a very specific model so in all honesty, I'm just going to end up finding a 70's Ruger equivalent, there's no way I can give what people want for them. The Ruger's are very fine firearms but it's not a Colt and you can get those for 600 to a grand NIB.

Try U S Firearms. In fact they are manufactured in the old Colt Factory in Hartford Ct. They are a bit pricier then some. But I'm pretty sure you are getting Colt type quality.

Those are really nice but high dollar, I'm not sure if you can beat the Ruger Unless your a pro, which I'm not.

About $3,000 for a new one that has no special history other than the Colt SAA legacy.
The USFA clones are actually better quality, and cost about half as much, but they are not the real Colts.

This is the Colt my wife bought me for Christmas our first year of marriage which is unfired, we were married 3July72 and she has bought me one every Christmas since. I think this christmas will be # 40.
I've never shot any of them because I prefer the Ruger Vaquero. I'm thinking this Christmas will be the last one because I'm retired now and have more guns than money.

Wow! 40 SAA's! Reminds me of a truck stop/casino in Reno, Nevada called "Sierra Sid's" back in the 90's. The walls were plastered with glass cabinets full of hundreds of SAA's of all vintages and calibers, etc. Some of them previously owned by Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Tex Ritter, and other horse opera stars. The guy must be wallowing in money.

I went to a big gun show at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas in the 70's and they had some of those guns there. I bought a 1878 41 cal. colt and had it shipped to Atlanta. They had a colt SAA that was made for Gov. George Wallace and it was some kind of Al. comm. There was only one made and it was just on display. I wish I had bought more guns, the SAA Colts were $150.00 and the Peacemaker's were $300.00 and I paid $200.00 for the 1878 and got home and gave it to my dad. He died in 1988 and the gun was nowhere to be found. Today a 41 thunder in that codition is worth over a thousand dollars. I'll always wonder what happened to it. Sometimes I dream about it.

Holy cow that's crazy, I wish we could still get them for that price but I wish we could still get allot of things for the prices back then, like my grandparents cars and houses were all under 5 grand, these were 55 Chevy's, mustangs, three bedroom farm house stuff like that, I was born way too late.
