That's a very nice collection of Rugers. Fortunately they are very reasonably priced where people can collect a number of them. They definitely are work horses and should able to be shot 100 years from now like the old Colts and Smiths are.

This old work horse Colt was made in 1891 and started started out as a 44-40 with a 4 1/2" barrel. I know it was used a lot, but no one's alive today to give an approximate count of how many rounds went through it. It was at one time taken to Africa, but I can't get the info regarding that expedition, but have the HH Heiser holster it used. The cylinder and barrel had been changed during the Mexican Revolution and the caliber was changed as well to .45LC. It spent many years in West Texas near the Big Bend and was owned by a working cowboy, who also was an extra in the movies and used this Colt quite a bit. Those 5-in-1 movie blanks, which I still have a few, are known for fowling up those movie guns as well and add to their wear. But this gun when using Ten-X BP ammo can still hit it's target out to 75 yards with no problem. Even though those BP SA's were built with cast iron frames, this one has proved to be extremely resilient and it isn't the exception to the rule.

Wait, you mean there is any question that its NOT Ruger? They make the toughest, most reliable factory single-action revolver period. Is it as smooth as a Copy SAA? No, but at 1/3 the price it can be readily with money left over.
I won't even discuss reliability and durability because we know who the loser will be.

They have produced a few. Not a lot, but a few.

Interesting. That's for the info.

Years ago I had an uncle that owned a trading post near the Rio Grande in Texas. He was friends with this cowboy that couldn't work anymore, so through him I purchased his gun, rig and chaps.
