    Welcome
    While it does unfortunately have the key lock and a few other newer features. This new model 66 is really growing on me. Picked it up today, sweet shooter, and even seems to carry well in my 1791 gunleather 3 inch K frame holster. Have a set of smaller boot grips on the way as well. 20200403_132710.jpg

    That's the only set of skip-checkered Herrett's Shooting Ace revolver grips I've seen...so no, you can't have them.

    Waste of a good .41 Mag. You could have done that with a M1917.

    HEH......No man, no war...... All boils down to personal preference, not whether one is better than the other, all have their use and all are good. I always lean to .45 anything. Years ago, I decided it was a waste to have both .429 and .45 and be aggravated with loading and doing both. I went 45. I did inherit a 44 a couple of years ago, and will one day get around to shooting it and messing with it. I have never had any 41s, and I load enough rifle stuff, I need to limit the number of handguns I load and mess with. I have had this 44 for about 3 years now, my buddy David used to come shoot this thing about every week until he passed on..............One day I will develop some good Cutting Edge bullet loads for it..........But won't be looking for any more 44s..............and I have to load Billys 44s anyway, so ..........

    You tell that @BatteryOaksBilly guy to load his own damn bullets. :D

    I have been thinking about a 45lc lever action for no good reason. Cause 45 I guess.

    I avoided 45 Colt, 44 & 357 for years because I had 41 mag & 10mm.

    Now I have 41 & 44, 357 & 10mm, as well as 45 Colt. Others, too, of course...

    When I get old and retire like @Jeppo, I'll load & choot 'em all!

    It's great in a levergun, but be choosy about factory ammo... most of it is too weak.

    I have a lot of 45 Colt lever guns. Have a wonderful little 16 inch Winchester 94 that I have literally carried all over the world, and have been very happy to have it along many times........ Especially in places where I could not
    take a handgun. I love them. Billy has a 44 exactly the same, or at least he used to..... I have a hard time keeping up with him!

    I use my little Winchester as a pressure gun for 45 Colt.. I have run some wicked heavy loads in it. Of course, staying at 45000 PSI or less as max. 300 gr bullets at 1600 fps is nothing to sneeze at, at least for handgun cartridge. I have run the 250 Flex at 1700 fps. But do keep in mind, yes strong for a handgun cartridge, but weak as piss compared to a rifle............

    Mike had them build him one in 45 Colt. Took a long time to get it but it was his Africa gun. @Michael458 will be along directly to show it.

    I always like that acute angle on the hammer. Modern Bisley so to speak.
