USFA makes quality stuff in the old Colt factory in Hartford. They are not cheap, that is for sure. But, from everything I have read about them, you can't buy any better. John Taffin really thinks highly of them.
i really like the thought of it but--------------a bit worried.........
it has twice the capacity of a single six......does that mean it is twice as likely to have timing problems?
the ratchet and internals must had been reduced in size quite a bit-------already seen examples on old h&r 9 shooters that when things get that small as far as the ratchet and so forth, they tend to wear out faster--------any thoughts?
This new gun has a full sized cylinder as in the same size as a 45 Colt. The ratchet will be smaller as you can see in the pics, but not as small as the H&R which has a small cylinder to begin with. They say that they have tested it for thousands of rounds with no problem. I have a couple of USFA guns and they are top quality, and have a lifetime warranty. It looks like the ratchet may be attached to the center bushing and it may then be replacable. Not sure of that, just looking at the pictures and voicing opinion. Looks cool to me.
I would think that the USFA guns would be better quality than the H&Rs. I've never owned a USFA, but have read and heard nothing but good things about them. I wonder if their customer service is up to par as well?
