Charles Daly/KBI going out of business.

This is sad news. I liked Charles Daly for bringing a lot of the Israeli stuff over. They were working on bringing the IWI Tavor over. At least the Bul 1911s and the Jerichos will be available through Magnum Research.

SHOT Show 2010 – US Firearms Releases Woodsman .22 LR

U.S. Firearms, makers of fine Single Action Army and 1911 pistols, is reintroducing the classic Colt Woodsman .22. They are going to be manufacturing the 2nd Generation Woodsman Match. They will be distributed exclusively by Davidson’s.

The Outdoow Wire reports: (Emphasis added)

The New USFA WOODSMAN® Match .22 is hand crafted just like you’d expect from USFA, known for high quality and is made with our reverence for great workmanship. The Woodsman will be made in 2 standard barrel lengths (4-1/2″ and 6″) both featuring the slab sided barrel weights, offered in our beautiful High Polish Dome Blue with checkered walnut, right hand thumb rest grips. Options such as nickel plating, engraving, custom grip materials, and matching Maxim “silencer” (sound suppressor) package will be available at extra cost.

That is cool. A new Maxim can to go with a new Woodsman.

I couldn’t find any pictures of the new gun yet.
