With the exception of the SW M325 and its infernal safety lock, I've bought all representatives of SW .45ACP revolvers. With the Colt I only had the M1917 and now the SAA in .45ACP. With Ruger, I have the Blackhawk Convertible in .45LC/.45ACP (and the other convertible too .357/9mm).
It now has been several years ago now but S&W brought out their Mountain Revolver in 45 ACP. This was pre internet days. I read it in a gun magazine, called the wholesaler and found one that they had two left out of a 1500 gun run. I beat it down to the LGS and ordered it. The best that I can remember is about mid 1990's.

It is a match to a 629 Mountain Gun I have and I shoot and carry it more than the 625 Mountain Gun.

I also have a Taurus Tracker in 45 ACP in four inch barrel with adjustable sights. Not the in the same class but it does have barrel porting.


It hard to explain big bore revolvers but what is not to like about easy to shoot powerful handguns?

That's gorgeous. I don't mind the grips actually. I guess after seeing so many old cowboy guys in different museums with different grips, lots of customized versions work well on the gun.

Which model?

I've bought within the last two years two Series 80 Government Models in .38 Super, one El Centauro in .38 Super, one Delta Elite, two Talo Lightweight Commander .38 Super, one Talo CCO, one Defender 9mm, one Series 80 blued Commander, and now one Gold Cup Trophy. None of them came in the cardboard. All came in the plastic cases.

I actually like the grips, though I can see why they'd look out of place on the Colt SAA.
It's beautiful revolver, let us know how it shoots for you.

Well, yea, it's a cardrdboard box, but it's a REALLY nice cardboard box.

I wouldn't throw it away if I were you. You can probably find something around the house to put in it.

Seriously, that is very nice. Congratulations.

Nice. I remember when all guns came in a cardboard box.
When men were men and nobody complained about it.

.45 ACP revolvers are as sweet as it gets. Whether they're in a DA or SA form. I guess some people don't realize that the cartridge chambers on the case mouth and not the rim of the cartridge. The auto pistol rounds work in a SA revolver just like any rimmed cartridge would. You drop one in the chamber mouth and it stops in the case mouth hits the ridge in the chamber, and ejection works the same way with the ejector rod slid into the chamber and pushing out the empty case from the front.

With D/A revolvers, the same applies as the revolver can be loaded without a moon clip and fired, only the ejector cannot grab the auto case to eject the case from the cylinder. That's what the moon clip is for. When that occurs, one can grab the cartridge with a fingernail and pull the cartridge from the cylinder. It's slower that way, but moon clips are not needed for the revolver to function. A .45 ACP cannot be fired in a .45 Colt. They're two different cartridges that require two different chambers.

Indeed, it's the first SAA and possibly the only one for me JUST because that it's chambered in .45ACP. Now if Talo were to get funky and commission Colt to make one for 9mm, I'd be on it like white on rice too. I love revolvers chambered in pistol cartridges. I don't know why, but I do.

Single Action revolvers (to me) just aren't comfortable to shoot.
(I've shot a lot of 'em, from Dakota Arms .44 mag, to Ruger Super Blackhawk, to Blackhawk. Nice revolvers, but, my hands like double-action revolvers, better.)

I've always wanted a Colt SAA, though. (4-3/4 to 5-1/2" barrel.)

That specimen is absolutely beautiful!!!!!

That SAA is screaming for Stag stocks!!!!!

Dang nice looking unit there for sure. Think you solved my problem about what I'll buy as a belated Christmas present to myself when I get home. But I want a .45 Long Colt. I had been thinking about getting a Blackhawk to compliment my .41 Mag Ruger, but after seeing the Colt, I think I'm sold on getting the "real" thing.

PS...I'm not too crazy about the grips, I like smoother wood on a single action and a lighter color to off-set the deep blue steel. I ain't enough of a cowboy to deserve stag grips..

Just keep in mind that the standard run comes in either blued or nickel plated. The blued model has blued barrel and case colored frame, not royal blued like mine.

Yeah, I'm not keen on the case hardend frame, but love the royal blue. I ain't got a problem waiting on one or coughing up extra money..........well.....yeah I do hate to "pay and wait" but looks like it's worth it.

I'll check out the Colt site and see what they offer and then get in touch with my gun dealer and it will be waiting for me when I get home....I hope.

That looks awesome! The only gun I've bought that came in a cardboard box is my Kahr, looks like everyone is following in Les Baers' footsteps.
