Default Info needed on this 1873 .45 Colt

I got a guy locally selling this American Western Arms Longhorn .45 Colt. I was wanting a single action again and figured why not a .45 Colt!

He is now asking $250 locally for it. Having never heard of this company before i'm a bit hesitant to pluck down the $$ for it.

It is the Color Case hardened version with what I believe is the 4.75" barrel.

This is a shot of the actual pistol.

Anyone with any info on this company, quality of the pistols, worth it for the price, etc. Would be helpful.
