Also forgot to mention that in about 1878 S&W chambered their New model #3 SA in .44-40 too. So I do not buy the excuse that they would've had to retool and redesign to get a .45 colt caliber #3. I do not know if it is true or not, but I read years ago that during development of the schofield revolver Dan Wesson said something to the effect of "I'll be d*#@*d if I chamber one of my guns for a COLT round." Again I do not know if it is true, but it was a competitive business.
