Are you making that it can't actually be like a snap on stock, but something that's just slapped on momentarily? Such as maybe using duct tape? I think the real loophole there is simply not getting caught.

No, according to our game warden as long as the stock is not mounted to the pistol in a permanant fashion SBR does not apply. Been using temp stock with leather strap on stock for years.

Duct tape... bite your tongue. It will never touch a revolver of mine.

45 colt hands down. Its the only caliber I like in a revolver.

And thanks for getting the name right, no such thing as 45 long colt
I thought the term ".45 Long Colt" was required/used in the late 1800's to differentiate between the .45 Colt and the shorter .45 Schofield?

357 is may fav-o-rite revolver cartridge. Dan Wesson 15-2 for the handgun. 357 brass from low and slow 725fps wadcutters up to full house 180gr 1450fps loads. With the DW revolver I can also changing the barrel for the needs too.

If you remember the Dirty Harry movie where the San Francisco cops were killing the bad guys on the side of the road. At the station, Harry explains to the young guns that he shoots a 44 special. Then says "more knock down power than a 357 Magnum with less recoil"

If it uses loose powder and balls, it is NOT a firearm under Federal law. Shoulder stock or not, should not be an issue.

BUT, there are some socialist states that are more restrictive than the Feds. Check your state laws

"Long" Colt became commonly used as a result of the Schofield revolvers. While not technically correct, it had utility "back in the day". As .45 S&W is almost unheard of these days, it is a moot point.

Found it! This is the one I was thinking of, from "Covenant Rider."

"Gang! Throw down your guns! There's a long barreled colt pointed right at my face. Only 1 man carries a gun like that in these parts."

I don't think it's a .45 though. Any ideas?

its a sbr from my understanding. same as designing a blackpowder machine gune falls under machine gun law. and if you dont have a stamp you could land in trouble. a game warden is not a credible source for such things. i would strongly recomend asking the nfa branch of the batfe for a clarification.

one is 45 schofield one is 45 colt. 45 long colt is like saying clip to describe a magazine or pizza pie to describe pizza.
