This thread is interesting to me, because I've always wanted a look alike (that doesn't exist) to the S&W model 1917 that was in .44 mag, had a fixed rear sight, a tapered barrel, half moon front sight, no shroud, big ended ejector rod end that looked almost exactly like a model 1917 (unlike the non big ended, straight ended ejector rod on their recent series of a few years ago that resemble the 1917 but were not made in .44 mag and had that awful looking hammer lock hole. A 1917 model clone, but in .44 magnum. Wouldn't that be great?
"This is my Remy and this is my Colt. Remy loads easy and topstrap strong, Colt balances better and never feels wrong. A repro black powder revolver gun, they smoke and shoot lead and give me much fun. I can't figure out which one I like better, they're both fine revolvers that fit in my leather".
