Carry this Bisley in .45 LC all the time!
Since we are posting holsters, here's mine from Camp Curry for my Blackhawk
Definitely could be
@Michael Tinker Pearce and see if he'll work his.magic on it! That guy makes all manner of remarkable cut down pistols and pretty cool grips.
An 1851 Navy Richards-Mason Conversion cut back to 4" would be round about the coolest SA CCW I can think of. Why, if you ever had to pull it, your assailant would almost certainly go limp and slack-jawed in awe before you fired a shot, or would drop and abase himself before you chanting " I am not worthy ".
I mean....you make a great argument there.
I rarely use the thong, the fit in the holster is good enough that it doesn't need it. It's there in case of extra strenuous activities, which, as I age, come less and less frequently.
That's one sweet looking, super smooth, single action six gun!
On social occasions when carry was as much ceremonial as practical I have carried this ASM 1873 .45 Colt I call 'Shorty.' I re-engineered the ejector to produce a full-length stroke despite the 3-1/2" barrel.
Likewise I have occasionally packed this Avenging Angel based on a Cimmaron Richards-Mason .38 Special-
I agree on reload definitely.
Although here's a wild idea: carryhawk comes with a second cylinder in 45acp, how about reloading like the black powder days and just swap in the cylinder.
I'd want the base pin to be slightly easier to take out than the one on my Blackhawk ( which is very very very tight fitting) but seems doable. You'd have to make sure to not dump out the rounds( unless the cylinder has something to capture the rimlessness of the 45acp?)
Freedom Arms in 45-70.
Why the hell not? You only live once
That's a pretty cool idea, definitely looking into it more
I assume the size of all the components are the same, just smaller holes
I usually shoot SA revolvers better than anything else.
Duedmeister, your revo looks more manageable.
BTW, have one of the '51 conversions, and they are pretty neat. Always liked open tops.
Yes I would agree, but oddly my scale is telling me otherwise at 37.21 oz. I moved it around but it stayed the same. Then I checked the scale with a 1 lb weight and then my (known weight) S&W R8, and both were accurate within 1/10 of an once or so. So, yeah mine seems a bit light for some reason. I changed the grips from the wood to the pearl, but not sure that would make up that kind of difference. ??
So, I got the scale out and weighed the Thunderball again. As you can see it's actually 33oz. So considering your numbers, everything makes sense now.
FWIW, my engraved Cattleman in .45Colt and 5.5" barrel is 36.4oz. Just a little lighter than your Thunderball, even though it has 2.5" longer barrel
Add the tremendous reliability, ease of use, safety, accuracy, and power of a single action revolver and you end up with an extremely effective carry gun.
