Don’t know SAA, I have no interest in them, but I do own three of the new DA Colts...a 38+P 2017 Cobra, a 2018 38+P DAO Night Cobra and earlier this year, I picked up a 357 Magnum 2019 Colt King Cobra with 3” barrel. And I plan to add the 4” King Cobra Target as soon as I run one down here. These are sweet shooters. I have no issues with the finish. It’s functional, does its job. These are working guns meant for carry and use. Not range toys or BBQ guns. The actions on all three are better than the standard production out of the box S&W’s, Ruger’s, or Charters. Not the least bit gritty, very very smooth. To get equivalents would need a Match Champion or a Smith PC SSR. Around 8 1/4 lb DA, 2-3 lb SA triggers. Clean break on pull through.
