My first M97 chambered in 45 Colt. It's topped with a JPoint reflex sight.



What's the max pressure FA rates the M97 45 Colt?


Not positive, but I think it's just rated for the Ruger only loads. Anything more would be overexciting to participate in
\:D


Maybe 500WE or someone else with more knowledge on the subject will chime in.

This has a .22 mag cylinder as well and shoots better than me. I've since put a scope on it so it's appearance has changed. I've got another is .44 special but have neglected to photograph it apparently.

Dur, your 41 has been proven! It needs a vacation trip to Texas and introduced to a big whitetail

SChunter, You're killing me with that FA 97 in .41 Mag!! Nice looking piece and obviously a killing machine. Well done.

Kim - she's been to TX, but only been used on does and hogs there. So far.

Mark - it has been one of my favorites. So much so, I'm struggling not to take her to Iowa later in December. Right now, a pair of Mod 83's are on the dance card.

If it made the Iowa trip, what would be your choice of ammo?
