I am in the market for a revolver. Nothing too spendy. But for the money. Reliable. In the. 357 cal.
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.The Colt SAA has 4 clicks. It says C- O- L -T when you pull the hammer back.
Another one for Ruger. If I am not mistaken, the older 3 screw Rugers can be upgraded to the modern safety system, no? This is done by them for free.
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.comThere 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.
