    For OP's cartridge choice if he already has 357/38 ammo in hand then a single action revolver in 357/38 is a nice addition to his collection without the hassle and expense of procuring 45LC. Several years ago when I added a SA to my collection I bought a Ruger flattop in 357/38/9mm. Lots of choices in today's market unlike 45LC which had limited choices at higher prices five years ago. (And much less today.)

    I have an Uberti/Taylor's "Old Randall" in .45 Colt that looks exactly like his bottom one. Great revolver.

    My El Patron has the laser etched pattern centered on the hammer. Back in the day hammers were forge knurled or roll press knurled before case hardening. I think it produced a beautiful effect. The laser etch is just cost cutting and has no esthetic value what so ever but it is effective when centered. In my humble opinion.

    The Hombre was a $250 gun brand new. I'm not too worried about it.

    I have been in REHAB for revolver addiction 8 times, they always try to ease me off with single actions,
    then break open revolvers, even black powder, nothing has worked. Just admit you can't quit & live a little.

    I have a Uberti cattlemen II that I purchased new earlier this year the checkering on the hammer looks better than the previous photo but it is slightly to the right of center. After looking at this for a while thought maybe they're doing this on purpose to keep right handed shooter's thumbs from slipping off the hammer. It's a known fact that anybody that designs guns cares less about lefties.
