First I must say that I LOVE the original Colt Single Action Army/Peacemaker, and I had decided to try and stick to the original factory specs because I liked the original gun. I wanted to stick to the original .45LC cartridge, but after doing research I read that the SA six guns built around the original specs are not designed to withstand the power from hot loads. I do like the factory .45LC rounds, but I would also like to be able to fire hotter loads than the factory rounds. And for the record, I do not plan on hand loading anytime soon. The 3rd gen Colt SAA has an option to come chambered in .357 mag, and I am willing to go with the .357 and stray away from the original .45LC because I hear that the .357 can shoot hot loads without damaging the gun. I was trying to stay away from the newer Colts because I hear they have reliability issues and are not built as well as previous gen SAAs. So far I have been a real big fan of US Firearms. They took over the original Colt factory, and I hear they make better SAAs than Colt ever did, but they don't offer it chambered in .357. They do offer a low profile hammer on limited models, which I would prefer because the original spec is almost too high for my thumb to reach, but it looks like it is only offered with a finish that doesn't interest me. Aside from Colt and US Firearms, I have not looked into any other manufacturers. I don't want a cheap knock off, I would rather spend more money to get a high quality product. I am looking for a high quality SAA. Preferably .357mag with a low profile hammer, does anybody have any recommendations?
