I checked for you and the price has gone up a bit. It's listing for $136.75 now, but I'm still willing to help you out and give you $273.50! LOL!!
In all honesty I recently saw a 1972 second generation 4 3/4" .357 that was 98% because of a drag line on the cylinder. It was wearing real elephant ivory grips, no box or factory papers and asking price of $2000. How much of that price is condition and how much can be assigned to the ivory grips I don't know.

Last insurance appraisal on mine was $1,100 to $1,200. That was in 2000 and for a well used, but cared for Colt.

You might want to check the Ruger .45 Colt-.45ACP conversion revolver.
Around here, it sells for around $485.00.
This might be my next purchase.

I ordered this Taylor & Co. Smoke Wagon 5 1/2" .45 Colt on Sunday afternoon from Bud's and picked it up at my local gun dealer this afternoon. Now that is what I call fast service! I've got to say this is one beautifully made handgun. Fit and finish could not be better. It's action is slick as hell with a nice 2.5lb. trigger pull.

Doesn't Umberti now off a model called "el padrone" (or something like that) . Where they take some of their SAA off the line and send them to there custom shope and have them tuned up?

Yes they do and it's very similar what is done to the Taylor Smoke Wagon. Here's a photo of the El Patron and you can't tell the difference between the two.

Is there much difference in price? I am also looking for a 45 SAA to go with my Tauras (sp?) Thunderbolt.

I think the biggest difference is in what you can't see. I also looked at the El Patron which is about $120 to $140 less, but for that extra money you get a gun that's more than ready right out of the box. A lot of CAS shooters send their guns out to be tuned or buy them from a gunsmith ready to go, this is timed and tuned by Cody Conagher, a well known gunsmith in CAS circles. He also redesigned the internals to make it smoother and more reliable. I had mentioned the Smoke Wagon to Jeff Quinn of GunBlast www.gunblast.com/ and he had said it was an excellent gun. I trust Jeff more than I do any gun rag and I usually agree with his gun reviews. I certainly agree in regard to this gun.
