Don’t Waste Your Money
Unless you are a Colt guy, or a gun connoisseur of sorts…there is nothing these Colts can do that a well tuned lower end revolver can’t. My outhouse Rugers all used to go to the gunsmith after their first trip to the range. Because of (hork, spit) lawyers, Ruger puts abominable triggers on their guns. A spring kit and some judicious polishing by the smith will tune them right up. Then they’re just like yo mamma - ugly…but you’ll love them just the same.

My newest Blackhawk is a Bisley .44 Special, a Lipsey's gun. I put a 17# Wolff hammer spring in it, which reduced its trigger pull to just over 2 pounds. Its trigger is even sweeter than an unconverted 3 screw .45 Colt Blackhawk of mine that I also put a 17# hammer spring in.ReplyDelete
There's nothing wrong with a Blackhawk, be it old or new.
Those snakes are very cool, however I could never quite reach for my wallet. Instead a I bought a S&W 686 six-inch barrel. It served me long and well. I eventually sold it as I just wasn't shooting it that much and it was too heavy for some family members. Found a S&W Model 67 LEO trade-in (some state fish and game) that was like new. Did my own trigger job on it and It is just a sweetheart to shoot. Still have it.ReplyDelete
I have a Ruger three screw Single Six with both cylinders that belonged to an older (than me) friend who is now long deceased. Also an Old Army stainless percussion. I had the rammer machined to fit the nose of bullets from and RCBS 255gr 45 Colt bullet. Bullets drop out of my mould at .454. I run them through the lubricator to fill the grease groove and they are ready to shoot.
Yep. You will shoot as well with those as you will with the Colt. Maybe even better.Delete
Agree, the cost of Python would be better spent purchasing ammunition and practicing with what you have. The Security-Six by Ruger was plenty good.ReplyDelete
Don't know Glen, you have to admit it sorta all came together for the Python... even more so for the smaller framed Diamondback.ReplyDelete
They sure did Stu... but ... ugh!!! The prices!!!Delete
have Ruger Redhawk , SW 29-2 , 40 year old PythonReplyDelete
yes the Ruger is my favourite , easiest to shoot
Is it really, M? I woulda thunk the Colts would be slightly more comfortable with the big grips...Delete
I'll put in a two thumbs up for a nice used S&W Highway Patrolman. A revolver among revolvers.ReplyDelete
Agreed. My ranch carry revolver was a well worn Model 28 with a four inch barrel. It was built like a tank and was amazingly accurate. I'd load two rounds of snake shot (for the rattlesnakes and wasp nests) and four rounds of handloads (for the coyotes and two legged snakes).Delete
