What Bill said.
Main thing is , you can't go wrong with any of them. Fun is fun whatever version you decide on. I myself am a huge fan of the bigun's !!!!
Don't get too much into the Rem. stronger than Colt thing. I am pretty sure Colts went the way of the frame for production reasons. Easier (and cheaper) to drill a frame and screw in a barrel than manufacture the barrel assys. they produced until the Mod. of 1873. Not to mention the fitting of the arbor to barrel assy. that is soo much talked about (and rightly so and very necessary). Thanks to the Ubertis and Peittas for affordable guns you, I and a host of others enjoy and yak about to anyone who will listen !!!!!!!
