USFA Manufacturing Co. Rodeo .45 Colt

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

We thought the Rodeo was a great-looking six-shooter despite its non-traditional finish. We particularly liked the feel of the action, the slightly improved but still essentially traditional sights, and the accuracy.

The Rodeo's sight picture left little to be desired. The front blade was wider than on traditional Colts, and the rear notch was flat-bottomed, both of which helped us shoot the Rodeo without harming its authentic look and feel.
The AWA Peacekeeper and the Rodeo (left) had the old-style cone-shaped firing pins. The Uberti and Colt (right) had the modern style. Only the new Colt failed to have a case-colored hammer, being white instead.
