UNITED SPORTING ARMS, INC.
Location: Tucson, Arizona
United Sporting Arms manufactured high-quality, heavy-duty single-action revolvers in several locations in NY, CT, ID, NC, and AZ from about 1972 to 1999. Initial production model was called the Abilene, offered in .357 or .44 Mag., and limited numbers of .45 Colt. The Abilene was acquired by Mossberg. Successor models by United Sporting Arms were the Seville and the El Dorado, both models produced in many variations. The El Dorado was the first all-stainless .44 Magnum single-action on the market. Associated firms producing these models included El Dorado Arms and Sporting Arms, Inc. Most common chambering is .44 Magnum, but a stretched frame variation was produced for longer cartridges such as the.357 Maximum. Other production is reported in .22 LR, .454. Mag, .41 Mag, .45 Win. Mag. and .357 Super Mag. Extremely rare chamberings reportedly include 9mm, .44-40, .32 H&R Mag, .22 K-Hornet, and .218 Mashburn Bee. Any chambering other than .44 Magnum brings a premium. Unusual configurations such as short Sheriff’s Models, long Silhouette Models, birds-head grip, unusual factory finishes, and brass grip frame should also bring a premium. Guns made in Hauppauge, NY or Post Falls, ID may bring 10% to 20% less than those made in other locations. Packages including extra barrels and cylinders were offered as Quik-Kit guns, and a premium is added for these additional components.
