45 colt

  1. Blackhawk-->SuPeR Blackhawk Conversion?

    I've always liked the single six, but as I grew up the grip shrank. When I bought a 357 Blackhawk a few years ago, it seemed so short that I hated it. I sold it. It had too small of a grip for my paws. I've really got a craving for a good, strong built 45 colt, but I don't like the stubby...

  6. Henry steel big boy / skinner express sights

    Skinner Sights
    I found one of the new STEEL FRAME "BIG BOY" Rifles from HENRY REPEATING ARMS at one of the LGS. This is a VERY nice rifle. Wood to metal fit is more than satisfactory, grain and color of wood is nice, checkering very clean and sharp, and the action is silky smooth. (really... almost...
  7. 700 Round Big Bore Range Day: I'm wooped but it was Fun!

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Howdy, it was a great day at the range today. I took all my big bores for a full day of trigger finger fun. The only non-Marlins were my judge and 45. A ran just over two hundred rounds of 45/70's through my 1895G and my new-to-me 1895GS. Then I ran just shy of two hundred rounds through the...
  8. Question: 44 Magnum versus 45 Colt

    I am wondering if these cartridges are comparable for a reloader? I assume the normal factory ammo for the 45 Colt are tame for historical reasons. When I look at the reloading data for modern firearms, it looks like the 1894 in 45 LC would actually be hotter than the 44 Mag. It looks like...
