I really have wanted a .45 acp revolver since I found out that they made them. I've been looking for one, but most of the ones around here are 625s and I can't afford one (stupid collage loans), so I was looking on gunbroker and saw a good amount of Brazilian 1917s for about $300. Which got me thinking (not good,) maybe I get one of those and slowly fix it up, have the barrel cut and crowned to 3", have a new front sight put on, refinish it. Hopefully I can have a nice .45 after to long to carry and enjoy. So my question to all you revolver guy's is this a good plan or should I just hold off until later and get 625?
