Okay, so I have this sweet Winchester lever action that my grandfather left me when he past on ( RIP RC ).
I believe it's an 1873, it's chambered in .44 wcf ( .44-40 ) and this rifle has killed so many deer in it's day, I am pretty sure the Deer Coalition of the Upper Peninsula have an open bounty on the owner.
I am thinking about getting a pistol that will "match" the era/style of this historic firearm and would like it to be chambered in the same caliber ( for obvious reasons ).
I really like the Schofield, and I know that Uberti makes replica pistols that are "like" the S&W number 3 and chambered in .44-40. I don't need a true "era" piece, as this weapon will be fired and be part of a set that I would consider to be functional.
That said, I don't want a modern looking pistol made of titanium and looks like it belongs in the hands of some wannabe Cowboy Gansta from the Los Zetas hierarchy.
So, revolver guys, what do you think and what are your thoughts??
Price - I am open, but don't need a $10K authentic piece either.
Timing - Probably late this year, first part of 2011
Color - Brushed stainless to match the rifle
Caliber - .44-40
And I do have a line on some gun leather to carry it in, but obviously I would like to have the pistol first since I will be getting the holster cut to match.
Thanks for the input!!
