    I'll be boycotting Expendables 3 if Steven Seagal isn't given a role in it. He should've been in Expendables 2!!!

    I keep seeing the new Uberti firing pin referred to as "floating". It is not, it is a retractable firing pin. No Colt SAA or halfway authentic replica has a floating firing pin. The frame mounted firing pin of Rugers is "floating". Because it "floats" in the frame, rather than being attached to and moving with the hammer.

    Scott Eastwood looks like his pappy but he doesn't have the voice or demeanor to play the kinds of roles that Clint did.

    The Sheriffs Model or Storekeeper are actual items, instead of the "movie prop", used by some Cowboy Action shooter's.

    They WERE mid-$500, before the DEM panic.
    Seem to be in the $650 range, now.
    Being the "movie prop", the store COULD have added a premium.

    If they have had it that long and you want it, a $600 offer would be my suggestion.

    I would buy it at full price, I have very little shopping time, but It missing the roller on the hammer. That was a critical part of the movie.

    and trying to find that part would be impossible

    Seagal doesn't need to be skinny to break arms.

    Something to consider that I believe would be a lot more reliable, tough, has great customer service support and is cooler (IMHO ;)) you should check out this baby. This one is .45 Colt. They make a .45 ACP and if you bought either one Ruger could make you a matching cylinder in the other chambering for around $150.

    Hey Mark_Mark, not to derail, and just an unrelated question here, but did your mom have a hair lipped dog by any chance? :)

    That is pretty sweet, but I dont think $900 worth though.

    I have something similar. Cost me $750 new.

    Absolutely. Ruger’s transfer bar system allows the safe carry of all 6 chambers loaded.

    Don’t take my word for it. Here’s an article that talks about the Ruger transfer bar system. This one is about Vaqueros but Ruger uses the same system in their other single action revolvers.

    i Like Ruger, never had a problem with their quality guns like the Ruger #1 and M77 and 9mm’s. The lifetime warranty might be worth the extra $300 over a Uberti

    That is correct. The new Ubertis have a retractable firing pin. It protrudes enough from the hammer to be visible, but not enough to contact a primer. Its normal state is 'retracted'. When the trigger is pulled an actuator pushes the firing pin forward just enough to fire a primer. When the trigger is released, the firing pin retracts back that small amount again.

    Ruger revolvers have always had frame mounted, spring loaded firing pins. The spring keeps the firing pin back away from a primer so the cylinder can turn.

    The old Three Screw Rugers had no transfer bar. The hammer struck the frame mounted firing pin to fire a cartridge.

    Modern Rugers have a transfer bar. The hammer strikes the transfer bar, which 'transfers' the hammer blow to the frame mounted firing pin. When the trigger is released, the transfer bar retracts down slightly into the frame. When the transfer bar has retracted, the hammer cannot contact the firing pin.

    Steven Seagal couldn't act his way out of a paper bag. One of the worst actors I have ever seen. I won't waste my time watching one of his movies. I watched Rocky the other night. The original. I think it is a pretty good movie and Stalone did an excellent job. He was very believable as a down on his luck club fighter who moonlighted as a leg breaker. I loved the scene where he hollers at old Burgess Meredith, who wants to be his trainer. At the end of the scene Rocky runs out of his apartment and hugs Burgess. That was a class act.

    Supposed to be Elk antler from some guy on the internet about 18 years ago. Don't remember the particulars though. Got two sets, on both my SASS pistols.

    Typically Rugers always sell for less than MSRP. Last year in the heat of buyer frenzy stupidity I bought a brand new Ruger Vaquero 5.5” .45 Colt for $600 at my LGS. I do believe they knocked $50 off as I am a good customer but the MSRP was around $800 at the time.
    Ruger’s MSRP has gone up quite a bit this year, as as everything else, but I figure a $900 MSRP could mean a gun store price of $700-$750.
