Mighty expensive for NOS. You can get a bunch of Pietta's or a Colt 1911. There's a lot of guns you could get with that kind of money that's much better than a ROA.

here is my vtx after the pipes, PCIII and hypercharger running a 50 shot of dry nitrous (it doesnt need nitrous to go 125 lol). unfortunately when honda designed the 1800's they only put just enough gear in them so they hit the rev limiter at about 124/125mph after you put "power adders" on them... so i'm going to be putting the 1300 final drive in which has taller gears and with all the power this thing makes now she will be more friendly around town... i'll be looking forward to getting it in the bike and sending you run times, top speed, hp/torque data etc...

thanks!!!

These ROA's are getting into Springfield M1A money. I'd rather have another M1A. ROA's as I recall, were always expensive when they were readily available new.

Ruger seems to have jacked their prices way up on most of their steel frame revolvers.
I wouldn't mind one of those new 45 Colt / 45 ACP Redhawks but don't want to give what they are asking for them.

I don't know either, but my guess is that the guns are NOS. if you had a serial number you could find out the date of manufacture.

Recently talked with a guy that has ROAs , he states a gun shop here in California requires
these to now be registered through an FFL as a firearm. When I questioned him further he said , gun shops have
stated the DOJ definition as ROA not being a reproduction of an antque  made prior to 1898, It is a modification of a
new Ruger Black Hawk frame.
Here we go ...........

That may well be one gun shop with that requirement. A search of all online California DOJ documents shows no such listing for the ROA. California goes by the Federal listing of "antiques." In any case, gun shops screw up their records by logging in muzzle loading firearms into their books.

If it is an FFL transfer, it has to go into their log books. If it is a non-FFL entry like a muzzle loader it causes problems, except in states like Illinois, etc., where they have to do that. Not in California though.
