Nice piece. I wish they would make those with a 4-5/8" tube.

Rod, too.

Short cuts often lead to long recoveries.

Rod, you knoiw, I wish they offered a number of different barrel lengths, instead of forcing us to have them modified. I do like this barrel length, though.

If it like mine, it'll shoot. Did yours come with the .45acp cylinder?

Whit,


Good looking Bisley!


Is that your warm-up gun for the Max and the Alaskan?

Haha! It's a starter pistol! I think it'll make a nice hunting piece. Going to shoot it this weekend.

Thank you!


335 grain WFNs and then I am going to be trying some 340 grain SSKs. Will shoot it tomorrow for the first time.

That's a nice looking 45! Is it staying that way or will it be a 454 or 475?

This one is staying as is -- I'll tweak it a bit, but I really like .45 Colts.

nothing fancy, but a great rig. I think it would do nicely in a good cross-draw or strong side belt holster as a backup to the big boys Wink
