    I believe both of these are made by the same people, both by RANCAN:


    "Perhaps their prices have come down since another manufacturer started selling them on eBay for $180, but the steel isn't quite the same as the original factory part."

    "Old South Firearms lists a new aftermarket ROA cylinder for $155 but it must be backordered. --->>> http://www.oldsouthfirearms.com/RugerOldArmyUpgradeandReplacementCylinder.aspx"

    To all,

    Not a member, yet. What is a reasonable price for a stainless ROA? Many thanks in advance.

    They call it an upgrade but the only actual upgraded cylinders I’m aware of come from Clements or classicballistx.com both have greater powder capacity and are a drop in of excellent quality. The RANCAN cylinder is cheap, true but if you want the highest quality readily available replacement www.classicballistx.com is there place to go.

    @rabid wombat is it fixed or adjustable sighted? The fix sighted models go for more, up to a thousand a piece. Depends on condition of course but 5-700 seems like a reasonable price for an adjustable sighted model in good to excellent condition.

    Prices can have a wide variation depending on where you find it and condition as woodnbow mentioned.
    Local gun shops or private individuals will sometimes sell them for $400 - $500 which is very reasonable.
    New or like new can cost $700 - $1000 such as on internet auction sites which are on the high end but not considered to be too unreasonable for folks who really want a certain model and can find what they're looking for.
    Any price midway between the high and low of $400 - $1000 is also considered to be reasonably acceptable which is what woodnbow menrioned.

    I will agree with articap, & woodnbow,and say about the lowest price you could hope to be lucky enough to find is $400 for a Stainless Steel Adjustable Sight Ruger Old Army in decent condition.
    They occasionally sell at that price, but don't last long so you could scour auctions, listing, and shops constantly and still miss out.
    If one gets listed as a buy it now on one of the auction sites for $400 it will sell FAST, as in less than an hour or two. Maybe just a few minutes.

    The above comments to price are spot on, took me yrs to get my 2nd SS ROA by sheer luck, it was listed as a B/P pistol, not Ruger and Only a few of us bid, got it for $325 shipped, it did have a rough spot in the bore, apparent squib left in too long, shot fine, but I'm real picky, was going to get rebarreled till someone had a frame not being bid on so I jumped, it was excellent/possibly unfired, so I blended the best of both, still under $450 invested and a spare frame and barrel, I may just have shortened as the bad spot is 1 1/2" back from end of 7 1/2" barrel.

    To all,

    It is a stainless with adjustable sights for $725. I can not state condition. Located in Houston, not that it really matters.

    I would pass. The stainless with the adjustable sights are the most common variety. I picked up a blue 7 1/2" with adj. sights for $350 at a pawn shop about 2 years ago. Granted that they are more now, $450-500 would be the most I'd pay for that gun.
