As to the relative popularity of .44-40 vs .45 Colt, some years ago The American Rifleman did an article on .44-40 caliber revolvers of the period. The summation was that Colt made more .44-40 revolvers than all other manufacturers combined, and Colt produced far more .45 Colt revovler than .44-40s.

And, remember the .44-40 took a bad hit during the transition from black powder to smokeless.
