New pistols

Recommended Posts

If I were going to buy another pair of Colt clones, I would look first at EMF Pietta.  They are the closest copy of the real Colt SAA.  And retain a lot of Colt features that Uberti has not put in their revolvers.  I have several sets of Uberti and Pietta but nothing fits my hands better than real Colts.

The only gun I have had someone worked on was the old Colt above.  It needed the notches welded and recut. He retimed the action as part of the rebuild.

Thanks Warden!   I appreciate the info.    Real colts aren't likely in the near future, but I appreciate the info on the others.

I can't tell you what you should buy, I can only tell you what was right for me... 

For .45 Colt, I went with a pair of SASS Ruger Vaqueros, (5-1/2", Stainless, 5-1/2" barrels,) and had Three Cut work his magic on them (action work, short stroke, bevel all leading edges, transfer bar delete),and Eagle Gunfighter Grips.   I shoot black powder without problem, no need to do extra cleaning or extra lube between stages, they are also perfect with smokeless.

AND

A pair of Ruger Old Army revolvers, stainless, fixed sights, with conversion cylinders.  Magic performed on them by Goons Gun Works, Eagle Gunfighter Grips....

AND

A pair of Colt's Single Action Army revolvers, 5-1/2", Blue/CCH, Wolf Springs, otherwise stock...

AND

A pair of Pietta 1860 Army revolvers, 5-1/2" Blue/CCH, new sights and Super Blackhawk Hammers by Three Cut, Magic performed on them by Goons Gun Works,  conversion cylinders and percussion.
