I've had three of these over the years, two .44's with a .45 Colt between them. The only one that gave me trouble was the last .44, which broke a cylinder bolt spring and could utterly NOT be disassembled and nut-buster, moderate heat, nor any of the standard 'locked threads' remedies had the slightest effect. Perhaps some gorilla had it apart and put it back together at some time, complete with loctite-from-hell. I don't know. I do know that one got scrapped for parts.

Overall though, they were nice, strong revolvers with slick actions that shot pretty close to the sights. I'd buy another and I wish I had kept the .45 Colt. I killed a big groundhog with one of the .44's, offhand, at about 117 paces if I recall correctly. I don't know which of us was more surprised.
