Picked this one up today. $162 out the door $149 retail price. Lock up is good, feels good, points naturally no blemishes on the finish at all. My only issue is the eagle is molded into the grip rather than an inserted medallion and as mentioned earlier the gate is a bit tight but that is ok as it isn't difficult to manipulate and should break in nicely. Other than that I love it and am waiting for the other two models to arrive. Shouldn't be too much longer! They're gonna sell a ton of these and I eagerly await a convertible model and some exclusives.

I put in my order two weeks ago for all 3 at my favorite local FFL. This one arrived today and the others expected to trickle in over the next week or so
.
Another local shop got in 25 of each model last Thursday but I didn't know as I don't frequent the shop. I called today to see if they had them and the gentleman told me that they sold all 75 guns the same day they arrived and two hours before closing time to boot. They had some 3 digits in and I'm kicking myself that I didn't think to check there. My guys will come through but I could have had em all by now if I were on point.

Now you SA guys, I don't want you to keel over but I might even get one (or two) :o . I like the Burnt Bronze color scheme and the price point is fantastic.

Must be a misprint; Ron and single action in the same post? :shock:
I submitted the information to get it on the Maryland accepted list. Could take a while.

I hear what you're sayin' Jay. I just got my ROCS SuperBlackhawk this morning so that is my 9th SA. But I did buy 4 DA's in the last 2-3 months that will fill some holes in my DA collection (3 GP100's and a low back Speed Six).

Ron, it's ok buddy. Welcome into the SA fold!

Zebra, the shops are all working to fill requests and I'll bet that within two weeks you're gonna have one. Congrats on the shopkeeper as I'd probably rather have that over the Wrangler!
