By the way, all third generation SAA Colts were made by Uberti. Colt just finished and assembled the parts so they didn't have to stamp Uberti on anything. The only difference was that the Ubertis were finished better.

Let's hope that someone will buy Colt and bring back this company to the quality the name demands.


Pete can you show some proof of that ?
The 3rd Generation Saa's coming out now (most come off the regular production line-about 200 per month,unless special order that goes through custom shop)are some of the best they have made in years. Even the picky Colt collectors agree.They are NOT Uberti's by any means !

OK, your point is well taken, but what about Walther 1911s and Pennsylvania Gatling Guns and 1903s?

Pete, I'm not sure where you get your information, but there are other Colts that are made in the U.S.A. such as the Colt Mustang Pocketlite Stainless............I know because I talked to the factory before buying it.

Same as Dave K I would like to see your proof on this statement, thank you.










Regards,


Doug

I believe the above is the web site for Colt. And with all due respect the old saw about 3rd Gen Colts being made by Uberti is not true... Now the earlier US Firearms (SAA Clones) were made by Uberti and finished in the US, that could be the confusion. Colt is still making guns... BTW, there is a very good Colt Forum if you have any questions about their current status.

I have seen no proof of 3rd Generation Colt Saa's-from Colt being made by Uberti,sorry but thats wrong info.And the fit and finish on the ones I have seen is excellent-they just don't put many out.There was some issues on "some" the later 80's ones when they had union troubles but not now.
Perhaps Pete is confusing the Colt Black Powder Guns (Black Box-and later Grey box) which did have parts brought in by Val Forgett-Aldo Uberti in the early years then Lou Imperato.
Or as posted above the early US Firearms ones,not the later ones.

I have to concur with Daves observations above. I own a few Uberti SAAs and there is no parts interchangability between the two firms products that I'm aware of. Uberti certainly did make the run of Black powder(percussion) guns for Colt.

I didn't know there was that much of a market for the 1903s. My grandpa gave me a 1903 .32 in the original box with paperwork. Kind of a neat gun but I don't know if I would buy a new one.
