Not too sure if exactly the same, think trigger guard and backstrap of Western Marshal were brass? Any way only cosmetic changes, I think.

Pawnshops in this area suck. Most of their used guns actually cost more than I could purchase the same gun new. After a few hundred trips one tends to just keep riding. They also grade the guns very poorly. If it's all in one piece it's graded as in new condition.

A couple years ago a local pawnshop that has fair ammo prices had the exact 20 ga Mossberg I was looking for. The gun was priced at $215, it was in fair condition. They called it like new condition. I could get the same gun for $215 NIB. I had to go to that area a few days later so I brought my Mossberg that is in new condition. I compared it to their gun and started picking it apart. The Pawnshops response was to call me unrealistic. Yet, I had a 15 year old well cared for gun to show them. Usually when a seller calls a buyer unrealistic, it's the seller that is unrealistic.

The Fast Draw craze of the 1960s created a demand for single action handguns. Many imports and the Great Western revolvers were marketed. This was also the birth of the Ruger 6 guns. Colt offered the Scout revolvers which never really caught on. The Colt New Frontier a work of art but was never chambered for the new .44 magnums.
Cowboy shooting has brought back many of the single action classics.

I looked hard at Colt new frontier 22 LR/ Mag. Combo but went w Rugers single six. Colt w have been a better investment.

Single actions tend to recoil up vs double actions seem to recoil right back at you. Just watch a few youtubes of people getting whacked in the head.... Enough said...?

I appreciate the warning, but I've put enough rounds through single actions to know how to avoid that problem.
