Used Ruger SP101 would get my vote. If you can save up $1-200 more you open a whole bunch of choices.

I bought my 4in Gp100 for $600 and that is my favorite handgun. I would save up a little bit and buy that. If its a carry weapon the Gp100 gets a little heavy but it makes for a perfect range gun. Ive gotta have 2000+ rounds through mine with no problems. Ive owned it for less than a year and its defenitly a great handgun.

Needs 6 rounds. SP101 is only 5.

I'm guessing Taurus. Just be careful that the cylinder is drilled correctly.

Uberti 1873 Cattleman Hombre. Can be had for under $400 new. Fun gun to shoot. Got one a little while ago and now shoot it more then my Rugers.

I paid $300 for an Old Model Ruger Blackhawk last year. I was at my LGS buying something else, saw it and had to have it.

It was made in 1970 and has not had the transfer bar conversion. It is a six shooter. Like any older single action revolver should only be carried with the hammer resting on an empty chamber.

EAA Windicator is a great gun. I had the 2 inch. The EAA Bounty Hunter would fill your needs as well. The Bounty Hunter is a Copy of the old Colt Single Action Army. The Windicator is a modern double action 6 shot.
