From my experience, NONE of them are reliable!! I have had an original Colt in 44-40, two taurus; in .45 Colt, two AWAs' (one early, one late) and a "Gold Rush". Not a one of them as totally reliable. Sold them all and won't have another one, even if it was free!! There's a reason Colt made them only for a short while. They're ALL JUNK!!! MHO If you wanna' shoot CAS, get a lever '66, '73, or a JM Marlin. Stay away from the Winnie '92 & '94 copies as well. I speak from personal experience.
