Default double action six shooters?????????

Ok, dumb question. But I am new to this which you will soon find out. Does anyone make a cowboy looking six shooter in a double action?

Colt Lightning was a double action. And there were a few others.
Is this a curiousity type question or are you looking for one?

Current manufacture in a centerfire caliber? Not that I know of. High Standard made the "Longhorn" 22 LR 9 shot. There were some guns made in the 1800's that
combined (sort of) the looks of a SAA with double action lockwork.

Yes I am looking for one. I'm looking for a 357 mag or 44 mag in a cowboy style looking gun but I like double action. Picky I know. The cowboy looking thing is because I am a 40 year old kid. .

Good for you! It's never too late to have a fantastic childhood.

However, I don't know of anything out there that fits your requirements.

One of the problems was the mechanism was not strong enough.

H&R made a couple of .22s that fit that description. 949 and 676 I believe.

Eborden,
Nothing out there that you would want. Little to do with how they were made/perform, more about what they are. SA six shooters. The Colt peace maker could easily be a DA, just no need to be more than it is.
