Not exactly what you’ll find at a cowboy action match in 2009, but USFA’s Doug Donnelly seems to go on a new route to meet what might be considered as the 21st century demand among the Single Action aficionados. According to a newsletter received today, USFA is coming out with a new SA series called “Shooting Master”. Not much info to share besides this picture, but this model(s) will be manufactured in calibers 357 S&W Magnum, a new USFA® .41 Short Mag. and .44 S&W Magnum.

The 2009 introductory pricing for the initial model is MSRP of $899.00. Colors Shown above are: Coyote Tan, Sage Green, Forest Green, and Federal Brown. Also available: Sniper Grey and Black Graphite.

cant say that i'm a big single action fan, but just the look of those makes me want to avoid single action all together, i am thinking about getting a ruger vaquero to use as my side arm during hunts but not sure if its what i want just yet
Don't let their IGNORANCE take away YOUR rights!!!

The colors reminds me of cap guns from my youth.

Instead of tactical coloring for single actions, I think the demand will be in modified single actions that can be CCW'd.

Some folks will consider those as 'blasphemous'.      ;)

I can see a use for them as good utility or 'packing guns' to take hunting or outdoors and such. The color schemes are more of a novelty to me though. I probably would not buy one....but that's just me.
I love single actions, but I like blued steel. I have one nickel plated gun and one stainless gun and the rest are blued.
I guess it's like women, cars, and guitars........I like what I like, but to each his own.
It's what makes us unique.

P.S.
I'd take one if it was given to me.   ;D
