    If it was 1878, I'd carry one of these...

    It's one of the first in country, the new Beretta Laramie loosely based on the S&W Schofield and Russian top-breaks in .45LC. Serial is in the low 40s.

    I'd rather it have been in .44 Special, but I can't have everything.





    This is the cowboy gun I always wanted and should be a hell of a good time with the Webley.

    Pay it no mind I have a 1927A1 semi coming tomorrow that I've already paid for. I don't need no stinking Christmas presents for myself now I guess. :)

    Seems like a interesting piece, very "new" looking, by 1873 standards.

    Oh my - love top breaks - I like my ol' Webley MkVI for that as much as anything - quick ejection too.

    Lovely piece Robert - handsome in the extreme. And no - no more presents, your Xmas came early

    how does it balance in the hand compared to a Colt SA or clone? I see the combat advantage to the S&W but surelike the Colt SA lines. Congrats on the purchase.

    Nice!

    The only top break I have is an old .32 that was my Grandfathers. It's marked "Iver Johnson's Arms & Cycle Works". It's also marked "PAT. June 16.96", that's 1896 of course.

    Haha, the good 'ol Ivor Johnson. I have one of these old purse fiends - and it's seen better days LOL!

    Made a new mainspring for it and (after a fashion) it shoots!

    Balance smokes the Colt SAAs I'm used to and it points better for me than the SAA where I'm always vertical stringing man supreme.

    I also just don't really like the gate-loading design and am a top-break snob if it's single action.
