A few weeks ago I was at a gun show and stumbled across an old, beat up revolver that looked somewhat like a SAA clone. The gun was double action and had a swing out cylinder. I can't remember the brand name as it was something I've never heard of.

Does anybody know of the revolver of which I speak? The more I think about it, the more I wish I would have bought it or at least checked it out further...

There were a number of companies, Spanish mostly, that made a cheap DA that resembled a scaled down Colt SAA.

They only ressembled a Colt SAA because of the grip, ejecter, front sight. I've seen some that even had a swing out cylinder. Mostly 22's and small calbers, I never saw or read of a big bore. I think H&R made some in 22.

The handle of some 1877 Colt revolvers (sometimes called "Lightnings") were altered by gunsmiths to have a somewhat SAA look during past years. These did not have swing-out cylinders though.
