Can anyone tell me anything about the quality of replicas sold under the name, "Liberty Arms". A local dealer has a used Colt replica at a very good price but can tell me nothing about the company. The gun appears to be well built but I'm just getting into Cowboy Shooting and don't want to make a bad buy.

They're built (imported?) by KBI, inc., is as much as I know about them. You didn't say how much they were asking for the used example but dealer cost new is $209.50 with the blue/cc finish and brass BS/TG in .45 LC and barrel length of your choice.

I just got back from a gun show and was able to check out one of the Liberty single actions. It was zip tied so I could "feel" the action but fit and finsh were very nice in deed. The case color was extremely nice and the blue was pretty darn good. The grips were rather boring but fit well. (I have a "thing" for wood so it takes a lot to impress me when it comes to grips or stocks. ) Over all I'd say it looked pretty good, especialy considering the price.

Like you I have only seen them. They look great. But don't know anyone that shoots them is the problem.
