I have an EMF Hartford .44-40. Great rifle. 24" octagonal barrel and smooth as silk. Accuracy is outstanding. It was made by Rossi and EMF did the smoothing out, refinement. They changed the sights to a barley corn front and adjustable buckhorn rear.
My buddy has a .45LC Rossi with an 20" round barrel. No goofy safety and is fairly accurate to 75 yards. Not as smooth, but still not bad. Trigger is VG.
Freedom is not free. The best of us always leave too soon.
