    How Many Single Action Revolver Fans Are Here ??

    I will aways love the single action wheelgun ! It was the first modern, cartridge, repeat fire gun we ever had !
    Thoughts of the Old West, Jesse James, Wild Bill Hickok, The Youngers, John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, Johnny Wels, and others fill our heads . Quick draw, duels, smoke blazing, and beautiful single action revolvers abound !
    My two faves, the 45 Schofield and the Remington SAA !
    Moder faves, Ruger Vaquero 45 Colt.

    Outlaw Guns and Only Outlaws Will Have Guns !!

    I'm in. I don't own a single action revolver but the Super Blackhawk 44 Mag is on my wish list for no good reason other than I want it.

    I like them. I don't think them practical for carry, but I like plenty of guns for other reasons. Single action revolvers have an excellent feel and history to them. They are fun to shoot. They are just cool.

    I have a Uberti SAA clone in .45lc, and a 1851 Navy replica in .44 (ball and cap) revolver. Both get taken out every once in a while, just for the fun of it.

    I love Colt Single Action Army revolvers. I enjoy taking this shabby 1st Generation example of a 4 3/4-inch in .38-40 out for a range trip or carrying on a belt holster for hiking. It's mechanics are still first rate.






    I love the old .38-40 revolver and its cartridge but nothing balances as well in the hand as a 4 3/4-inch Colt Single Action Army chambered for .45 Colt. Because the bore is smaller the .38-40 gun is just a little more barrel-heavy.

    I like them. Shooting a single action is like stepping back and being a part of history. I have a Ruger 22 magnum single six and am looking at a Cimmaron with silver snake inlay on handle in 45 LC. Would love an Uberti 45 Schofield!!

    I remember shooting them much more when I was young. Definitely on my list of guns to get!

    diddo, I have an 1861 army colt rep and it is fun. take it out on the range and pop a couple of caps off and see people eyes light up from the smoke and flames. some one will allway approch us and want to see what we go.

    500, 45Colt old model Vaquero, Titanium 41. My favorite is the SAA when loaded up with 300 gr molys. 5 1/2" bbl is what Teddy Rosevelt chopped them for his rough riders, and still gives plenty of sight radius.

    Grew up shooting single action revolvers. Bought my first one with paper route money when I was in the 6th grade. Excellent triggers that will spoil you for anything else. To top that off I have never found a handgun that shoots where you are looking. Its design makes it a natural for point shooting.
