Ooooooh weee! That's a dandy, DH. My next FA M97 will most likely be a .327 - that is, unless I run across a .41 mag first.

We need a shooting report.

Thanks guys! This one has been in the safe since late summer/early fall last year and has yet to be shot. I hope to rectify that soon...

Some way, some how, I will have a 97 with a 5 1/2" octagon barrel chambered in 22lr/22mag, and black micarta grips, someday.

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.


Earlier this year I started on a quest to find myself a FA 97 in the 45 Colt Caliber. But my mind was changed.
I spoke with the one of the folks at FA. and di find out that for a fact that the 97 in 45 caliber is rated at 50,000PSI.
The problem comes in with the cylinder length. The longest COAL that can be used is 1.600 That knocks out a lot of the heavier loads, that can be used in a Ruger. EX: a 335 gr Leadhead bullet. I will say this. That particular load in my 4 5/8 Ruger is quite lively. A 260-265gr bullet should take care of most things addressed with the 97. And if you shop around you should be able to find a few bullets that are made specifically for the FA 97.
