Ain't it Purdy?

I just ordered one of these, from Dixie, for $325. It's the London gray model. The price on these hasn't spiked yet, as it has with the blued models. Dixie must still have old stock. These feel incredible in the hand. I'm gonna have Turnbull case-harden the rammer, for durability and just because I want something different. I might get a conversion cylinder for it, but I'm a little worried that firing .45 Colts/Schofields will ruin the gun. Whatcha all think?

Shooting cowboy loads in it shouldn't be a problem.

I would keep it to cowboy loads. That's what I use in my Ruger Old Army and i've shot many rounds through it without a problem. The Army frame is inherently stronger than the open top Colts.

Hawg knows what he's talkin' 'bout. Use cowboy loads and it'll outlast you.

Nice gun!

He probably did say something like that. He was a pretty smart guy and almost as handsome as me!
