Seville Single Actions for SASS?

Recommended Posts

Would Seville model .44 magnum 7 1/2" barreled revolvers work for SASS use? They were made by the now defunct "Sporting Arms, Inc." in Tuscon, Arizona. Apparently they were very well made, with smooth actions, good triggers, and designed to hold up to heavy loads, so SASS type loads would be no issue I would think..

Yes they are legal, but with one concern. If they the cylinder only holds 5 rounds, you can only load 4 for SASS.

The front sight inserts are the only changes needed to make that pair "legal".

Hey Celt, they look rock solid and nice lookin.

all ya need is a good gunsmith to work on the front sights or build parts. Maybe someone in your area or Alan Harton of Single Action Service located in Houston , Texas can give you some options.

Thanks guys, I kind of like different from the usual, so the Sevilles caught my attention, no idea what the pair currently up for auction will go for. And yea parts would be a concern for sure..

Those have been on Gunbroker for months. I think the reserve is pretty high.

Would the adjustable target sights restrict the class they could be used in?

Kinda looks like the Ruger Super Blackhawk. I know a pard that shoots 'em in CAS. .44 special. :ph34r:

Look like big, beautiful guns and I'd be proud to own them but they wouldn't be my first choice for CAS.

To make it so you keep them original, have metal inserts made for the front sights. That way you can put them back.
