Rugers are nice. But they ain't got the 4 clicks.
Here is a Uberti.

The Colt SAA has 4 clicks. It says C- O- L -T when you pull the hammer back.

That's why I never bought the Ruger. I need those four clicks, but it still feels different in the hand. I only own 1st and 2nd generation Colts, but did break down 10 years ago and bought a Cimmaron Bisley Flat Top Target 44-40 with 7 1/2"barrel. I love that revolver. The Italians did their homework well.

There is a strange thing at work here. There have been thousands of Colt Army SA copies made over the years. But no one has every got it right. There is a feel to a Colt grip like shaking hands with an old friend.

Ruger does ofer this service, and for free. BUT.......

If you want the transfer bar safety, buy a New Model Blackhawk. Those converted are turned into revolvers with stiff, gritty trigger pulls and clackety-clack actions. If you don't want, or are scared of a traditional single action, sell it or trade it. I've had one Super Blackhawk so converted and bought two already converted. They are all now back in their original condition.

Here is a converted three-screw .357 Magnum I bought several years ago:



The same gun, now a .44 Special and back to original configuration:

All nice pieces. Anyone dealt with any Pietta? I have been reading how they have improved their QC.

Actually the USFA are exact copies. They're pricey, but you do get what you pay for and I'd trust them over the recently manufactured Colts and they're a bit cheaper. For a number of reasons Colt has declined in my opinion, which saddens me a lot. Even the USFA Manfacturing Co. may be heading in the same direction unfortunately. This is their new business, but their timing stinks considering the outcry regarding so called aw's. www.usfazipfactory.com
They should've stuck with what they did best!

The Evil Roy 6 guns that were shipped to our LGS. Have been there for months. They are not that great.

I like this Lipsey Ruger .45 Colt/.45 ACP
