Found a used FA Field Grade .454 at a local shop this evening...was picking up my new Liberty safe (49 cubic feet, baby!!) and spied the FA laying in the case. It has the original box and a Millet base/rings with it. The tag is $899. Is this a fair deal?? Kinda strapped after the safe but will be fully recovered in a month or so...if it's still around...hhmmmmmm.

Sounds like a good price to me. What is the barrel length?

It looks like 7.5" or so to me.

That's probably the best all around length especially since we both carry more than one gun at times. Go for it you need one of those...

Dan B. I don't know if that is such a good price, unless it is in like new condition. I know where there is one in a shop that is a 7.5 inch, magnaport, T'SOB mount and a Leupold 2x scope. For 1100. Gee, wish I needed 2 FA revolvers in 454.

This one is in excellent condition. The one you mentioned may be a slightly better deal...the Leuplod is about $125 used and not sure what the T'SOB would cost for a FA but the porting is something I could really do without.

Dan B. We probably shouldn't talk about the gun, cuz I was in the shop again yesterday and handled it. Personnally, I like the look of Magnaporting. It say P-O-W-E-R. Can't help it. I wish that somebody, anybody would buy that gun. Besides, I was looking at a Les Baer compact 45. I know it's not for hunting but it is one cool looking gun.
