Just wondering what the grip angle is on a Colt SAA. I find I can hit pretty much anything with my clone without even aiming. I was thinking maybe if I can find a semi-auto with a similar grip angle I might get the same resullts. Just an idea, and really just curious what the angle is.

SAA are natural pointers because the grips are curved and not a straight angle. Your hand finds the "right" grip on the curve. Some people grip it higher, some lower. Whatever works for them.

The grip on the SAA is very different from any autoloader I have seen because your middle finger rests behind the trigger guard instead of below it. So, I wouldn't focus as much on the angle itself.

If it helps however, I find that both my 1860 Army replica (the cap and ball ancestor of the SAA) and a 1911 give me the same natural point of aim. They just come up right on target. Of course, many other handguns have copied the 1911 grip angle.

Yeah, due to the curved shape and how you hold it which is so different from a semi auto there is just no basis of comparison.
